All students entering the Rice graduate program in Philosophy receive a five-year fellowship package, which includes an annual stipend and a tuition waiver. Continued support is contingent upon satisfactory progress in the program. For the 2017-2018 academic year, the annual base stipend for full-time students is $21,000.
Students still enrolled in the program after the fifth year pay reduced tuition, currently $1247.50 per academic semester. However, advanced students who have secured additional fellowships, or research and teaching assistantships, can continue to receive tuition waivers.
Additional funding opportunities from within the department and university are available. For more information, please see Additional Funding and Fellowships.
