Financial Aid and Scholarships

Doctoral students may receive financial support from a variety of sources, and we recommend doctoral students research all available opportunities that will best suit their needs.

We also recommend that all prospective doctoral students consult with faculty and staff in their specific program of interest, as they will be able to share detailed information on additional sources of financial support, including fellowships and assistantships.

The University of Connecticut offers a variety of financial aid options, in addition to state and federal assistance. For current students, the Neag School has scholarships, which open for applications/nominations in the spring for the following academic year.

Individuals who are admitted to Neag School doctoral programs and who express a clear interest in becoming a faculty member of a research intensive university may be nominated by current Neag School faculty for the Dean’s Doctoral Scholars program, which provides four years of full tuition and a generous stipend to recipients.
