Financial Aid

There are several types of financial aid available for graduate students. Financial aid is reserved for our Ph.D. in Economics students.

The department must receive completed applications by January 15 in order to nominate applicants for a university fellowship. The department will make its own financial aid decisions at approximately the beginning of March. Financial aid decisions are made strictly on the basis of merit. No distinction is made between foreign and domestic students.

I-20 forms for foreign students are issued by the Admissions Office, not the Economics Department. Any financial aid offers made by the Economics Department will be reported to the Admissions Office for inclusion in the financial statement. Foreign students who are accepted into the program, but offered partial or no financial aid, must prove that they have the necessary funds required by the I-20 form.
