Financial Support

Acceptance into the Individualized Interdisciplinary Studies program carries no commitment of financial support on the part of the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, however, your supervisory committee must provide a minimum funding offer of $12,000 per year (2 years for master's, 4 years for doctoral) through TA and RAships. 

Individualized Interdisciplinary Studies students are eligible to apply for a limited number of Graduate Fellowships and internation funding through Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
