Our department evaluates applications on a rolling basis. However, to receive full consideration you should meet the following deadlines.
The department offers two main forms of financial support for doctoral students. To apply for departmental funding, please fill out the Application for Graduate Assistantship or Fellowship.
Assistantships may be either teaching assistantships or research assistantships.
Typical support for graduate assistantships covers the student's tuition and fees, health insurance, and offers financial compensation of $1,550 / month. If you are selected for an assistantship, you will receive additional details about your funding package at that time.
Two competitive fellowships are available for new doctoral students, providing up to three years of support provided that academic progress is maintained. Fellowships offer a stipend of $23,000 and an additional $7,000 to cover tuition, health insurance and other fees. Eligibility criteria for a fellowship include the following:
To keep your fellowship, you must show good academic performance and progress during each term of the award, maintain full-time enrollment in the program, and submit a research proposal by the end of your first year, with satisfactory progress shown each year after that.
