The History Department has been able to support its incoming students with fellowships, teaching assistantships, or a combination of the two. Continuing Ph.D. students normally are supported through teaching assistantships. Students who are advanced to candidacy are eligible to teach summer session courses and/or a one-quarter teaching fellowship (pending funding). Some fellowships are available to first-year and advanced students through campuswide competition. Additionally, the department offers a limited number of small fellowships for research and travel.

The History Department does not normally provide financial support to its M.A. students; however, you may apply for available teaching assistantships.
