The vast majority of admitted Ph.D. students are offered a research/teaching associateship, which comes with a stipend. Students are typically hired to work 20 hours per week with assigned faculty as research and teaching associates. The benefits of the associateships include a waiver of out-of-state tuition and 90% waiver of in-state tuition as well as free health insurance.

The few exceptions to this rule involve applicants who are paid by their governments, the military, or an external fellowship agency.

Note: Admission decisions are based on the quality of the applicant, not preexisting funding sources.

Additional Support

Students can apply for departmental grants for travel, research support, and dissertation support. Limits vary and are on a case-by-case basis depending on availability.
