Admission to the Ph.D. program comes with a Comparative Literature Department Fellowship, which guarantees five years of financial support. The funding package includes full tuition, health and dental insurance, stipend, and summer funding. We recognize that a doctoral degree in Comparative Literature, with its emphasis on language study and research abroad, will usually take six years to complete. We are committed to funding our graduate students for a sixth year, provided they remain in good standing.
Beyond the typical funding package, additional funding is available each year for travel to give conference papers, to learn languages, or to do dissertation research.
