Funding

Tuition, Scholarships, Stipends
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) provides resources to departments to offer, on average, a half tuition scholarship to each accepted student. Students who receive half scholarships pay tuition for the first year and not the second.

Students can be accepted with full tuition scholarship or with none.
The GSAS also provides a fund to departments to offer stipends to graduate students for teaching assistantships. The Music Department typically offers annual stipend amounts ranging from $3000 to $6000 as compensation for graduate student teaching assignments. These funds are separate from tuition scholarships. Some students do not receive teaching assignments, especially in the first semester of the program. Assignments are made according to interest/concentration and ability, and according to departmental needs.

Research Support
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences offers competitive opportunities for travel funds (for conferences) and research funds (field projects, travel to research institutions, etc.). Please consult the Graduate Study website for details and application forms.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
