Financial Aid

Boston University provides all incoming PhD students who maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress with a comprehensive package of five years of full fellowship support that covers tuition and mandatory fees, student health insurance, and an annual stipend. Fellowship support may take the form of a teaching fellowship, a research assistantship, a non-service fellowship, a dissertation fellowship, or a combination of these fellowship options. Details and policies regarding these fellowships can be found here.

The Graduate School also offers Graduate Research Abroad Fellowships to fund students’ travel, as does the Graduate Student Organization. For information about these opportunities and others, tuition, and living expenses, please consult the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Financial Aid site
