Financial Assistance

Pursuing a PhD is a significant financial investment in your career. Fortunately, we offer a competitive aid package to defray the cost of tuition. We offer all admitted doctoral students five years of guaranteed financial support, including summers. Aid might last longer than five years for exceptional students.

Tuition Remission and Health Insurance

If you receive financial support from UNC Kenan-Flagler or the University, you will be recommended for a waiver of out-of-state tuition and eligible for supplemental health insurance. The School covers health insurance premiums as part of our financial support. 

Tuition Waiver

Eligible out-of-state PhD students may receive both a tuition remission award that reduces tuition to the in-state rate as well as an in-state tuition award. Eligible in-state graduate students may receive an in-state award. These funding sources provide full tuition support for graduate students serving as university-supported teaching assistants, research assistants or fellows/trainees.
