ICS Ph.D. Financial Support

‘Students who are admitted are generally awarded two years of research and/or teaching assistantship funding upon entry, which covers the annual stipend (currently a minimum of $26,500), in-state tuition, and health insurance when possible. Additionally, out-of-state students may be granted an out-of-state tuition remission (OSTR), pending availability. Continued student funding beyond two years is contingent on satisfactory academic progress. Graduate research assistantships may also come from grants, fellowships, and contracts from external agencies such as the National Science Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Limited funds are available to support student professional development opportunities including workshop participation and travel to professional conferences.

A list of current project-based funding opportunities is shown below.
