A limited number of funded fellowships and research assistantships available through the Department and/or the University are awarded on the basis of academic merit. These typically provide a stipend, tuition scholarship, and health insurance. Some students are supported through extramural grant funds awarded to individual faculty members. All students are encouraged to apply to extramural sources for fellowship monies to support their programs. Those students with superior academic qualifications and high GRE scores will be nominated for institutional fellowships.
