    Aid for Ph.D. Students

    University of Chicago Fellowships
    All Ph.D. students admitted to the Divinity School in every area of doctoral study receive a 5-year University of Chicago Fellowship, which provides full tuition, a $22,000 stipend, up to four summer research stipends of $3000 each, (two initial and 2 additional based on achievement of milestones) and coverage in the University Student Health Insurance Plan (U-SHIP) for the student.

    Each year there are also a number of opportunities available for dissertation writing awards for students who have been admitted to Ph.D. candidacy, such as Marty Center fellowships, Provost's, Harper and Mellon awards (on campus), and other, off-campus opportunities, such as the Newcomb.

    Students are encouraged to apply for financial assistance from sources outside the Divinity School. For more information, students should consult the Graduate Student Affairs' Fellowship Kiosk.

    Foreign students are encouraged to explore appropriate funding opportunities such as Fulbright-Hays, DAAD, SSHRC (Canada Council), Harkness, and World Council of Churches grants.
