All students admitted to the PhD program in Musicology are provided with five-year funding packages. Students are supported each term either through an appointment as a Graduate Student Instructor (GSI) or through a fellowship, as detailed below. It is typical for students to serve as GSIs for approximately three years during the five-year funding period. All funding is conditional upon satisfactory progress toward the degree and satisfactory fulfillment of teaching obligations. Funding beyond the fifth year is not guaranteed; however, graduate students may qualify for additional support, including teaching opportunities, fellowships, and tuition-only fellowships.

  • Graduate Student Instructor assignments provide a full tuition waiver, GradCare medical insurance, and a stipend of $19,350 in exchange for teaching and related duties.
  • Regents Fellowships provide a full tuition waiver and a stipend of $19,000/year ($9,500/semester).
  • Rackham offers a number of selective fellowships for graduate students at different stages of their career.
  • Students are also encouraged to apply for funding from external sources. In addition to providing financial assistance, outside awards serve as formal recognition of significant accomplishments and promise as researchers and teachers.
