PhD student funding

Our funding package for PhD students is very strong. If admitted into the program, you are guaranteed five years of funding, including tuition, a stipend, and some summer support. We also have excellent funding for fieldwork, conference and research travel, and can offer especially good support for study and research in Mediterranean countries. Six years is the expected maximum time to degree; by the sixth year, students are normally well advanced in their dissertations and able to win university or national fellowships. Teaching experience is part of the training, though not in the first year.
