Financial Aid

Financial aid is awarded on the basis of academic merit. Assistance is available in the form of tuition waivers and/or stipends. All full-time graduate students working towards a Ph.D. degree receive a full tuition waiver plus stipend. The Department is the beneficiary of the Spahr Graduate Fellowship Funds, which will be used to make our stipends highly competitive with peer institutions.
