Most of the students in the PhD program are awarded a Graduate Assistantship (GA) based on merit. The financial support package, typically guaranteed for four years, includes a nine-month salary (currently $12,500), a tuition waiver, and a subsidized health insurance plan. Students who receive a GA position serve as research assistants, teaching assistants, and/or teaching fellows.
