  • Financial Aids:
  • We do not fund master's students. Not all PhD students are offered funding. Funding is based on merit not need. We offer 10 to 12 incoming students funding each year. The funding package is for 5 continuous years with full tuition and a 9-month stipend, which continues as long as a student is in good academic standing. It is the student's responsibility to look into alternative funding such as: faculty sponsored research, teaching assistantships at Harvard, outside fellowships or grants.
