Graduate Costs & Financial Support

Most degree candidates in the Graduate School receive financial support for the duration of their degree program through some combination of University fellowships, assistantships in research or teaching, and non-University awards.

The Graduate School participates in all major national fellowship programs. Graduate students win many of the following awards: Department of Defense Fellowships, Ford Predoctoral Fellowships for Minorities, Hertz Fellowships in the Applied Sciences, Mellon Fellowships in Humanistic Studies, National Science Foundation Fellowships, and U.S. Department of Education Fellowships (FLAS, GAANN, Javits).

The median time from matriculation to receiving a Ph.D. at Princeton, including all departments, is 5.5 years (for 2006–07).
