Financial Aid

PhD Programs

Applicants admitted to doctoral programs in the Physical Sciences Division are offered generous financial aid packages. Assuming satisfactory academic progress, financial support is typically for the duration of the doctoral program.

Doctoral financial support is funded from a variety of sources and, over the course of a student's program, may include research assistantships, teaching assistantships, training grants, and/or fellowships. Financial support offers are included in the admissions decision communication. Offers typically include full tuition, student health insurance and student services fee coverage, and a competitive stipend to cover living expenses.

Master's Programs

Terminal and professional master's programs typically offer no or very limited scholarship aid. Check with individual programs for more information.
