The HSD PhD Program makes funding offers in conjunction with admission offers. The program director works with faculty who might serve on a prospective student’s advisory committee to develop funding from a variety of campus resources, such as research assistantships funded by faculty grants, teaching assistantships, and fellowships. Prospective students desiring funding should be sure to list three faculty members they may wish to work within their online application.
