Fellowships & Funding

The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures offers all students in the Ph.D. program a complete five-year package of full funding support. The pattern of departmental support we propose includes a mix of graduate student instructorships (GSI-ships) and fellowship support. Unless otherwise indicated in your admission’s offer letter, all support is for the academic year only, and includes predetermined stipends and fringe benefits, as well as a tuition waiver. Summer support is not guaranteed by the department.

In order to receive continued assistance, you will need to be a student in good standing; meet degree requirements; perform GSI duties acceptably; and make progress towards the graduate degree according to schedule.
