It is our policy to provide full tuition and academic year stipend for five years, contingent on satisfactory progress towards the degree. Stipend levels may vary year-to-year but will never fall below The Graduate School's (TGS) base stipend level. Support may include fellowships, research assistantships or graduate assistantships. Summer funding is available through The Graduate School, at the TGS base rate, and is contingent upon an approved proposal. In addition, as a graduate student at Northwestern, you are eligible to enroll in a health insurance plan that will receive 100 percent subsidization from The Graduate School.
