Doctoral Program Financial Aid
The Joint Program in Social Work and Social Science provides all incoming doctoral students with a multi-year funding package. We combine fellowship awards, graduate student research assistant positions, and graduate student instructorships to offer most students five years of full funding, which includes tuition, stipends, and health care. Students may also apply for other sources of funding from within and outside of the University of Michigan. Students in the program have received very competitive pre-doctoral fellowships from organizations such as the National Science Foundation, Council on Social Work Education, American Association of University Women, National Institute of Mental Health, and Hartford Foundation. Students may also fill out a FAFSA and apply for federal aid through the Office of Financial Aid.
