How to Get a PhD
Apply for departmental grants or additional appointments
Many PhD programs will fully fund every student admitted into the program, through some combination of teaching responsibilities or research assistance completed in conjunction with the coursework. Full funding means that any tuition fees will be waived, and youll be awarded a stipend to cover your living expenses, anywhere between $13,000 and $30,000, depending on the location of the school and the nature of the program. Other programs assist students on a casebycase level, meaning that youll need to take funding into your own hands and make sure that your place in the department is financially secure.
