Ph.D. Aid and Awards

Standard Financial Support 

All students admitted to the doctoral program will receive full tuition and a base stipend, as well as health insurance coverage. Student service fees are deducted from the annual stipend. In order to maintain funding year-to-year, students must make sufficient progress toward the degree. 

All history Ph.D. students receive five years of funding. Three out of the five years are service-free (no additional workload aside from progress towards degree is required). The other two years, Ph.D. students will serve as teaching assistants alongside their normal workload. In addition, students can also apply for research assistantships, traineeships, and teaching assistantships outside the history department for additional income.
