The standard 9-month stipend for academic year 2012-2013 is $23,750.
The Office of Financial Aid disburses stipends to registered fellows during the registration period in September and January. All US citizens and permanent residents are strongly encouraged to arrange for the direct deposit of their stipend payments. A direct deposit authorization form is available here. International students and those without direct deposit may pick up their stipend checks at the Student Financial Services Cashier’s Window at 210 Kent Hall. All students will receive an email notification from Student Financial Services that will indicate when their direct deposit or paper check will be available.
If you are unable to pick up your paper check at the Cashier's Window, please contact Mr. Edwidge Turenne, Cashiering Manager, at email@example.com to make alternate arrangements.
Students holding teaching fellow or research fellow appointments receive 2/3 of the total award as stipend (disbursed as described above) and the remainder as semi-monthly payroll on the 15th and last day of the month. Students holding graduate research assistant appointments receive their entire stipend as semi-monthly payroll. All students, regardless of visa status, may receive the payroll portion of their award via direct deposit and are strongly encouraged to do so. Instructions for completing the on-line direct deposit form are here.
Fellows who withdraw during a semester, who resign from their appointments, or who are terminated from their appointments must return a prorated portion of the award to the University. The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Office of Financial Aid determines this prorated amount.
