Students in our program are guaranteed a competitive package of six years of academic year funding and four summers of financial support with full tuition remission and health and dental insurance coverage.

Students are eligible for a dissertation fellowship during the fifth or sixth year. Additional summer funding is provided while they prepare for their preliminary exam, and a stipend for research travel is available during their dissertation fellowship year. Students are also guaranteed funding each year for conference travel or other research needs.
