Financial Aid for Ph.D. Students
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences regularly provides financial aid to students in Ph.D. programs. Students who make normal progress toward completion can expect five years of awards that include tuition remission, fees, and a stipend sufficient to cover all living expenses. During the first year each new student will be granted a University Fellowship, followed by Teaching or Research Assistantships in the middle years of the program. Students may apply for a Dissertation Fellowship for the year during which they complete the degree. Students are encouraged to apply for summer support for research in East Asia or at library collections elsewhere.
Washington University also has several special fellowship programs such as the Olin Fellowship for Women or the Chancellor's Graduate Fellowship Program for outstanding students from underrepresented groups in American society who are interested in careers as college or university professors. Applicants for our doctoral programs from other countries may also be considered for the McDonnell Academy scholarships which include tuition remission and generous annual stipends.
Financial Aid for M.A. Students
Financial aid is available through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in the form of tuition scholarships. Our M.A. students usually receive a high percentage of tuition remission which helps to ease the burden of pursuing a graduate degree.
All applicants are automatically considered for financial aid. No additional application is required.
