Admission to the Ph.D. program comes with a Comparative Literature Department Fellowship, which guarantees five years of financial support. The funding package includes full tuition, health and dental insurance, stipend, and summer funding. We recognize that a doctoral degree in Comparative Literature, with its emphasis on language study and research abroad, will usually take six years to complete. We are committed to funding our graduate students for a sixth year, provided they remain in good standing.
