Doctoral Program Financial Aid

Students applying to the Ph.D. program are considered for a limited number of Tulane teaching assistantships, which provide stipend support and carry a full tuition waiver. Research assistantships, which also carry a full tuition waiver, may sometimes be obtained by arrangement with individual faculty members. All of the Ph.D. students in the department are currently supported by teaching or research assistantships which start at $28,000 for the 2017-18 academic year. In addition, students are given a $1,350 supplement to defray the cost of health insurance.
