Financial Support for PhD Students

Financial support is available to sociology graduate students. The major source of department support is in the form of teaching assistantships, which are granted every year on a competitive basis. Teaching assistants receive tuition remission and a substantial stipend. The department also awards the Chancellor's Award each year to promising incoming students.
