Financial Support

Nearly 95% of our graduate students receive funding.

To encourage and assist the graduate student of ability, Duke University has established a considerable number of fellowships, scholarships and assistantships.  The standard stipend for incoming PhD students in 2013 is $21,580, in addition to health coverage and full tuition.

Further competitive fellowships are also available for incoming and continuing students, as described on the Graduate School website.

All applicants will be considered without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, political affiliation, sex or age. The deadline for application for awards for the following Fall semester is December. It is suggested, however, that interested students apply as early as possible.

For an application form, please contact The Graduate School. If you have any questions concerning the program, please e-mail the Director of Graduate Studies, Professor Gopal Sreenivasan (gopal.sreenivasan@duke.edu).
