PhD Funding

The Graduate School and McCormick provide incoming PhD students with full funding, including paid tuition, paid health insurance, and a monthly stipend for living expenses.

  • The Graduate School administers fellowships, scholarships, and graduate assistantships for PhD students.
  • Academic programs determine the fellowship and scholarship awardees and also recommend the awarding of graduate assistantships.
  • Principal investigators and/or academic programs award research assistantships to students.

Master’s Program Financial Aid

McCormick generally does not fund master’s students. However, master’s students are provided with a variety of federal and private loan options so they can fund their educations regardless of financial circumstances.

Get information about applying for student loans and additional sources of financial aid from The Graduate School at Northwestern.

The Office of Student Financial Services assists current and incoming students with these loan processes and provides sound debt management services. Contact them at (847) 491-8950 or by email at gradfinaid@northwestern.edu.
