Financial Support

Students who are awarded doctoral fellowships receive five years of full support (including summers), including tuition, a monthly stipend ($2,700), and health insurance. Two out of the five years of doctoral support are non-teaching years; for the other three years, students serve as teaching assistants for the department’s undergraduate language and literature program, receiving training as well as practical experience in college-level pedagogy. There are also sufficient funds to support graduate student attendance at professional meetings and conferences, as well as an ongoing lecture and colloquium series curated by the graduate students, which brings in established and upcoming faculty from institutions in the U.S. and abroad.
