Our doctoral students are fully funded by Henry Mitchell MacCracken Fellowships, which provide a living stipend and full tuition for five years: three years of course work followed by two years of full support as MacCracken teaching assistants. The MacCracken can also be enhanced by a dean's supplement reserved for historically underrepresented minority groups.
At the completion of the MacCracken, several post-MacCracken fellowships, including the Dean's Dissertation Fellowship, the Patricia Dunn Lehrman Fellowship, the Torch Fellowship, and the Elaine Brody Fellowship in the Humanities, are available on a competitive basis.
