The Kellogg School of Management provides financial aid to admitted PhD students, including international students, for five years. The financial aid package includes:
- Fellowship stipend
- Teaching and/or research assistantship
- Tuition scholarship
- Payment of the Northwestern University student health insurance fee
- Subsidy for purchase of a laptop computer
Doctoral students who receive financial assistance during the first year of study may expect this assistance to be renewed annually through year five, providing they achieve satisfactory progress and meet program-specific requirements. For professional development purposes, in years two, three, and four, a portion of the student’s stipend is allocated toward wages for teaching and research assistance for approximately 10 hours per week. Opportunities to teach may also be made available by the department.
The Graduate School, for your reference, provides detailed information on
tuition costs and estimated expenses (found below) of graduate study at Northwestern University -- most of which is covered by the student's financial aid package. Kellogg's financial aid package is intended to support each student; therefore, this amount would not include coverage of expenses for dependents.
To qualify for financial aid, the application and supporting documents should be received by the application deadline: December 31. Applicants are automatically considered for financial aid when they submit the online application form; there are no additional forms to complete.
