Range of Funding Possibilities


Recommended Posts

As I understand it, a typical funding package is a tuition waiver plus a 14,000 - 19,000 stipend (depending on the school and COL of the area). What I gather from my school's websites is that the stipend is contingent on the TA/RA position. If they're asking you to work for it, I can't imagine them still forcing you to work if you try to decline. They might be happy to offer the stipend to someone else.

Delaware's application gave me the option of asking for a tuition waiver only and no TA/RA/Fellowship, so maybe other schools will let you choose the same after enrolling. It's hard to know for any of us who are also only in the app stages.

Your safest option is to just call each department you're applying to and ask. Shouldn't be a big deal.
