Doctoral Funding

Christopher Nellum

Christopher came to the School of Education to find answers to questions about who is prepared for higher education, what facilitates or impedes their participation in college, and what factors are involved in students’ successful completion of a program. His inquiries have been supported by funding from the Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education, a Rackham Conference Travel Grant, and work as a graduate student instructor.

You want to come but don't know how you'll cover the tuition and expenses?

Good news! Although individual funding situations may vary, the majority of students in our doctoral programs  receive a minimum of four years of financial support to cover tuition, along with a stipend for living expenses during the fall and winter semesters and health insurance for the entire year. Please note that health and dental benefits are available for you and your family members. The University of Michigan Benefits Office offers information about the benefit packages that we offer our PhD students.

Typically, as a student in this program, you'll receive a 20-hour-per-week assignment as graduate student research assistant, graduate student staff assistant, or graduate student instructor. Your academic progress will be reviewed annually by faculty and awards are contingent upon maintaining good academic standing. Learn more about individual funding opportunities by visiting programs that interest you.

Because the funding options available to you depend upon the program in which you enroll, we list the opportunities by program.
