Full and partial tuition scholarships are available to many M.S. and most Ph.D students. Teaching and research assistantships are available on a competitive basis for students with good academic standing; stipends are currently $15,000 for the nine-month academic year. Incoming students demonstrating exceptional research ability will be nominated for the prestigious Provost fellowship and the Dean's fellowship awards, which provide additional support over and above the stipend. These fellowships are competitive and a department usually nominates a few students from the incoming pool for these awards. To find out about financial aid, please visit Tufts Graduate Financial Aid.
