Graduate Program Assistantships and Funding

Financial Assistance

The Department awards a limited number of teaching assistantships to qualified students focusing on environmental philosophy. These assistantships carry a stipend of about $9,000 and a tuition waiver. You must indicate on your application that you wish to be considered for a teaching assistantship. (Only in exceptional circumstances, might a student in the traditional masters degree (non-environmental) be awarded funding). Philosophy graduate students are also eligible for the Bertha Morton Fellowship and other University-wide financial aid programs, including those supported by the Federal government. Further information is available from the "Financial Assistance" section of the Graduate School web site and from the UM Financial Aid Office.
