Financial Aid

The History Department endeavors to provide 5-year funding packages to as many Ph.D. students as resources allow.  Typically these packages include one or two years of fellowship and three years of Teaching or Research Assistantships.  Ph.D. students are encouraged to apply for outside funding to support their dissertation research and writing. While most M.A. students are not guarenteed funding, many students often receive full funding each semester through work as a Teaching Assistant or Graduate Assistant. There are many opportunities to work as Graduate or Research Assistants outside of the Department of History to receive full funding as well (i.e. Advising, ARHU, etc.).

Please consult the pages in this section to determine how to apply for both university and external financial support.
