Funding

Financial Support for Graduate Students

All students who matriculate to the Carolina-Duke Graduate Program in German Studies will receive funding that covers tuition and health insurance and provides a stipend for 5 consecutive years.  

This support is contingent on stipend holders meeting satisfactory performance criteria.  In the 2015-2016 academic year, the stipend amount was $22,030.  No work services are expected in return for the funding in the first year of graduate study.  In the following four years, students are funded through a combination of fellowships, research, and teaching assistantships.  

Students are also guaranteed some summer funding in their first two summers of graduate work.  In subsequent summers, a variety of fellowship and TA opportunities are available.
