Financial Support

All of our graduate students are supported during the academic year with a mix of fellowships, research assistantships, or teaching assistantships for at least five years of study. The vast majority of our students receive additional support during the summer. Our stipends are competitive with similar programs across the country as well as other departments at the University of Georgia, especially when combined with the low cost of living in Athens (see Living in Athens). Our students have a strong track record of receiving prestigious external and internal fellowships.
