All of our doctoral program students receive four years of financial support including
a nine-month Research or Teaching Fellowship stipend, medical coverage, and a waiver
of University tuition. At the dissertation stage all students are eligible
for a twelve month Dissertation Research Fellowship to help complete the degree.
It is important to note that this program is a fulltime program and our students
cannot be employed elsewhere while enrolled at Annenberg.
Funding is contingent upon full-time enrollment, sound academic progress, and satisfactory
performance as a Teaching or Research Fellow. These fellowships are designed to
help provide students with an opportunity to become leaders in their field of study,
as well as provide well-deserved recognition for their work. Each semester, Annenberg
students are assigned to work as either teaching or research fellows, depending
on the students’ interests and the needs of the program and faculty with whom they
work. The goal is to train students for various aspects of academic and professional
careers in communication research. Although the frequency of teaching and research
may differ among students, all are required to participate in a mix of both activities.
Additional financial resources available for graduate students include:
