Departmental Scholarships & Fellowships

The Department provides several types of merit-based financial aid to students:

Arabic Department/Graduate School Teaching Assistantships offer a stipend ($32,500 in 2020-2021), full tuition support for nine credits per semester, and health insurance for five years. Students are required to work up to 15 hours of work per week for five years, usually as a Teaching Assistant to a faculty member teaching a first-year, second-year, or third-year intensive Arabic course. 
All U.S. and international PhD students who submit applications for full-time enrollment by scholarship deadline are considered for funding. Upon completion of the application review, you will be notified by separate letter if you have been awarded a merit-based scholarship or fellowship from the Arabic Department.
