Due to the on-going global pandemic, PhD funding will be limited for fall 2021-2022 admission. We anticipate being able to fund very few new students. Potential applicants should consider this circumstance in making their decision to apply. In case of doubt, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies or the Director of Graduate Admissions. As circumstances change, this message will be updated.
The deadline to apply with consideration for funding is December 15 of every application cycle.
College of Arts and Sciences Awards and Fellowships
To be considered for the Graduate Assistantship and enhanced fellowships, please submit your application no later than December 15. Applicants seeking an academic career in higher/postsecondary education who desire a teaching assistantship and scholarship support should apply for the PhD, even if they do not already hold an MA.
For dissertation support, qualified doctoral candidates may also apply for fellowships from the Graduate Student Association, the Humanities Institute and/or the Gender Institute.
The department supports graduate student travel to present papers or chair sessions at conferences with a stipend of $400 per year.
