Financial Support

Financial Support for Admitted Students

Each admitted student is provided with a package of support which usually consists of a combination of graduate teaching appointments and/or fellowship support. Graduate teaching appointments in the undergraduate curriculum are a significant part of students graduate training and support. Fellowships, tuition support, and nominated fellowship opportunities are available throughout the students graduate career, dependent on merit and excellence in academic progress. 

The Department recognizes that for the graduate student, the educational and financial benefits of teaching eventually are offset by its time demands. Students therefore are encouraged to actively  seek out and apply for university and outside sources of financial aid, especially for the semesters immediately following the qualifying exam.
