Funding Package

All admitted students are offered a six year funding package, contingent upon satisfactory progress toward degree and performance as a Graduate Student Instructor.  This funding offer includes tuition coverage, yearly stipend or salary of at least $38, 970, and health and dental insurance for you and eligible dependents. The basic funding package currently includes one year of fellowship and up to five years of teaching as a Graduate Student Instructor (GSI). 


While no additional application materials are required to be considered for University of Michigan-related funding sources, the Department does encourage students to apply for funding from independent sources. Should you be awarded funding from one of these sources, the Department will work with you to supply support for the years not covered by the tenure of the award received.
