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. No more than half of the hours worked during this time frame are allocated toward teaching assistance. Opportunities to teach may also be made available by the department.
The funding package outlined above is in addition to research funding
made available to doctoral students while enrolled at Kellogg.
The Graduate School, for your reference, provides detailed information on
the tuition costs
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 of December 15. Applicants are automatically considered for financial aid when they submit the online application form; there are no additional forms to complete.
