General Information

Students admitted to the Ph.D. program will be offered a full funding package for their studies. Typically, the offer entails 5 years of funding that includes a stipend, tuition, as well as health and dental benefits. Support is usually offered in the form of a Graduate Student Instructorship (GSI).  

Students admitted to the Master's program are expected to secure their own financial support. A student may fund his/her education through personal funds, loans, financial aid, fellowships, or through employment at the University. The University of Michigan establishes standard student budgets each year to help students plan how they will pay for their graduate program. Master's students are encouraged to seek employment opportunities in other academic departments and around campus.
