2020-2021 Funding Priorities

For the 2020-2021 academic year, we are prioritizing funding for students in the following areas:

Financial Support for Ph.D. Students

Doctoral students are typically funded either through externally-funded grants (from National Science Foundation, National Institutes for Health, etc.) or through departmental assistantships. University fellowships are also available for exceptional candidates.

Assistantships provide tuition for 9 credit hours, health insurance, and a monthly stipend. Some also cover fees. LAUP typically provides four years of support if the students are in good standing, which is equivalent to about $76,400 in total. Work assignments include both research and teaching opportunities. International and domestic students receiving financial assistance are eligible for in-state tuition.
