How are stipends paid?


Recommended Posts

I'm going to be starting a PhD program in the fall, and have been guaranteed a certain amount of funding per year. This is not contingent on whether or not I am appointed as a TA or some other position, even though that will certainly be the case. So, I'm wondering if anyone knows if there is a standard way in which these stipends are paid out? Do we get periodical checks, or do they give us lump sum for a whole semester? I know that this likely depends on the individual university and program, but I just want to hear some feedback from people who have personal experience with stipends.

For what I heard about my school is that they pay on a monthly basis. The currents students I talked to during my campus visit told me so. But, as somebody has mentioned here, it depends on the school. Maybe you can ask current students.
