Fellowships

Teaching assistantships currently carry an annual stipend of $12,000 for students with a BA and $12,600 for students with an MA or the equivalent. TAs also receive a waiver of all tuition costs and teach two courses each semester. Students in their fourth year teach only one course per semester. Nearly all of our accepted students receive TAs. No final offer of assistantship can be made until all application materials have been received.

Additionally, our students compete each year for several Walton Fellowships of $14,000 and several James T. Whitehead and Lily Peter Fellowships of $1,000 or greater. Other graduate fellowships worth $4,000 per year for up to four years also may be available for academically qualified candidates.

Translation students working from Middle-Eastern languages such as Arabic or Hebrew are eligible for fellowships of $12,000 per year.
