Graduate Program Funding

Financial aid is available in the form of Graduate Assistantships and Graduate Fellowships.

The Linguistics department typically provides financial support for all the PhD students that it admits, through a combination of fellowships, and teaching or research assistantships. Such support is continued for up to five years, subject to maintenance of satisfactory progress in the program.

For students admitted to the MA program only, we cannot always promise financial support, especially in the first year of graduate study. However, depending on availability, MA students are sometimes admitted with a commitment of financial support as well; and support in the form of teaching assistantships is easier to obtain in the second year.
