Financial Support

Graduate students are generously supported through teaching and research assistantships and University fellowships.  Students in good academic standing are guaranteed appointments for periods of at least 4 1/2 years (Ph.D. candidates) or 2 1/2 years (M.S.) candidates.  Stipends for 2013-14 range from $19,500 (M.S.) to $21,500 (Ph.D.) for a twelve-month appointment.  A $1010 credit is made toward the University's health insurance plan.  First-year bonuses and renewable merit fellowships providing an additional $2,500 per year are available to outstanding doctoral applicants.  In addition, first-year bonuses of $1,250 are available for highly-talented students pursuing their Ph.D. in physical chemistry.  Advanced Ph.D. students are typically funded through research assistantships ($21,500 or higher) provided by their respective advisors.

Graduate tuition and fees for the 2013-14 academic year are $7,600, for which a tuition scholarship is provided.
