Financial Assistance

The Department of Economics offers research and teaching assistantships to qualified full-time PhD students for five years. Our stipends are very competitive, both nationally and internationally, and includes full-tuition waiver and health insurance coverage. These assistantships provide opportunities to work closely with faculty in their research and teaching activities, including participation in original research leading to academic recognition through co-authored publications.

Typically, a first-year student will receive a research assistantship, including summer support, and be assigned with a faculty mentor. In addition, a limited number of supplemental fellowship may be available and top applicants will be automatically considered for our most-attractive assistantship packages.
