Funding Opportunities


Internal BU Funding

Those applying for PhD program and check the appropriate box on the application are automatically considered for the following positions which provide stipends and cover tuition costs. These funded positions are competitive and the decisions are made by the graduate committee:

  • Fellowships

External Funding

Graduate students are encouraged to seek out external funding for their research. THE ME faculty are willing to work with students to develop the necessary research statements for these types of fellowships. Many of these are due in December or January. Thus they are more feasible for students who are already studying in our program.
