Financial Aid

All students are informed of their financial aid during the admissions process. For general information and questions, contact the College’s Office of Financial Aid. (Visit the Office of Student Aid for information on financial assistance.)

A few full-time fellowships are available for matriculating doctoral students and are awarded on a competitive basis, taking into consideration every aspect of a student's application including his or her fit with what the program offers, his or her potential to contribute to program activities, and his or her potential to become a contributor to the field.

Support for continuing students, for example through federal work-study or one-time fellowships, is allocated on a comparable competitive basis, taking into consideration such factors as students; performance and progress through the program, their previous engagement in program-related activities, and what stage in the program they have entered. The program also has several permanent, modest-sized fellowships that are awarded annually to continuing students whom faculty judge to be doing exemplary work in their current studies.
