All applicants who meet the admission requirement are automatically considered for a 100% tuition scholarship which covers up to 60 credits of course work plus an additional 12 credits of independent research work. At the rate of 2022-2023 rate of $2,310 per credit, this scholarship is worth at least $166,320. The number of tuition scholarships is limited every year and very competitive. Please find UM graduate student cost of attendance here.

In addition to the tuition scholarship, the program makes every effort to provide funding for doctoral students through graduate and research assistantships. Graduate assistants receive stipend for 20 hours of work weekly during an academic year (i.e., equivalent to 9 months). Graduate and research assistantships are awarded to students who demonstrate good progress toward graduation and are subject to availability. Continuation of funding is not automatic; it is contingent on student performance in the assistantship. Inadequate performance can lead to the withdrawal of financial support.

A complete list of resources for obtaining other types of fellowships, scholarships, and loans can be found on the Graduate School website under Financial Aid and Funding Opportunities.
