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
- 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 the tuition costs and estimated expenses of graduate study at Northwestern University -- most of which is covered by the student's financial aid package.
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.
