Graduate Student Fellowships & Aid

Fellowships and Other Funding Sources

Departmental financial aid is generally available only for doctoral students. Applicants to the CIS doctoral program are considered for available funding; it is not necessary to submit extra material to be considered for funding.  Funded doctoral students receive payment of tuition and fees, a stipend for living expenses, and payment of University of Pennsylvania Student Health Insurance.

There are no RA positions available in the department; only research fellow positions for doctoral students. Teaching Assistant (TA) duties are generally met by doctoral students participating in a Teaching Practicum.
