The Graduate School provides an annual summer research stipend as part of the multi-year funding package for doctoral students. Students must be in good standing and making satisfactory academic progress in order to receive this funding. In addition, they should provide their department with a written description of their proposed summer research project and submit an end-of-summer report to their department. Departments will forward the end-of-summer reports to the Graduate School for review.
Students who have banked an academic year of their multi-year fellowship funding under the Graduate School may not use a banked summer of GSAS support beyond summer of their seventh year.
Students who have received other summer funding, either from another Columbia department or an external agency may retain GSAS funding in combination with non-GSAS awards for a maximum summer stipend of $7,000.
Students who hold external need-based awards such as Javits may receive a GSAS summer stipend as long as the additional funding does not reduce their academic year awards. Javits awardees should contact Sandra Peters (email@example.com), the GSAS program coordinator for Javits, to discuss their individual budgets and circumstances.
