The Graduate Center is committed to both attracting students as well as ensuring they have the resources to complete their program.  The Office of Financial Aid provides students with the financial resources and information they need to successfully complete their graduate study. 

  • All entering doctoral students in the humanities, social sciences, and the sciences will receive a five-year fellowship package. These packages include tuition remission and many also include a generous stipend and health insurance.
  • 45% of entering students are also guaranteed to receive summer support for the five years. These summer fellowships are used to assist students with their research during the summer months. Additional summer funding opportunities may be available to students via a competitive application process.
  • The Graduate Center has tripled the amount of student research funding. This funding provides yearlong fellowships for students working on both early and dissertation-stage research. Many of the dissertation fellowships will also provide an in-state tuition scholarship.
