Graduate Information

The Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GRS) awards various types of fellowship aid to PhD students.  All newly admitted domestic and international PhD students will receive a 5-year fellowship offer, which may be a combination of a non-service fellowship (such as a Dean’s Fellowship), teaching fellowship, or doctoral research fellowship, depending on the department of admission.

The fellowship is contingent upon you maintaining Good Academic Conduct, maintaining Good Academic Standing, and making Satisfactory Academic Progress, as defined by your department and the Graduate School of Arts and Science.  This funding includes a full tuition scholarship, mandatory student fees, payment of the premium for BU’s basic Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP); and a stipend as described in your admission offer letter. Detailed information about the fellowship awards and the policies and privileges associated with each award can be found below.
