The Screen Arts & Cultures doctoral program provides assistance to all admitted students for the full 5 years of their study. We offer students a combination of fellowships and graduate student instructor (GSI) positions that include tuition remission, a stipend, and eligibility to participate in the University's health benefits program. A limited number of fellowships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement and the Graduate Program Committee's expectations of student success in our program. The department and Rackham Graduate School also offers Rackham Merit Fellowships to students from culturally, geographically, or educationally underrepresented groups in our discipline or at the University.

For more on funding your graduate education, please visit the Rackham Graduate School.
