Costs and Aid
All students admitted to the PhD program in public policy receive six years of guaranteed funding. This funding package covers a stipend, health insurance, and tuition. Rates for stipend, insurance, and tuition are set by the Graduate School and updated annually – current rates can be found here. Student stipends are funded through a combination of fellowships, teaching assistantships, and research assistantships. All funding is conditional on maintaining satisfactory academic progress in the program.
