Funding

Determining how to pay for your graduate education is as important as deciding what to study. Whether you are a prospective applicant or a current student, explore this section to learn of the many available options for financing your studies and research.

Funding can come in many forms: from payment of conference fees to full support, which provides the most valuable resource – time. Departments and programs determine funding packages, which comprise a combination of assistantships, fellowships, and other support.
