Student Financial Support


Students receive support throughout their graduate career. Sources of support are research fellowships, teaching assistantships, training grants and other fellowships. Students are strongly encouraged to apply for graduate fellowships in their first and second years. The financial support provides full tuition remission, payment of student health insurance, and a monthly stipend for living expenses. Continuing support beyond the first year is contingent on maintaining the academic standards required by the program.
