You will receive a fellowship package based on your area of study. Students in the humanities and social sciences, for instance, are eligible to receive any of the fellowships listed under that heading.
In order to receive their fellowship in a timely manner, doctoral students should be sure to accept their financial aid in CUNYfirst and register as full-time (7 credits or WIUS. Audit credits do not count towards full-time enrollment for financial aid purposes). International student should also be sure to keep their Sprintax TDS information updated. For more information, please review our "How to Get Paid" cheatsheets for incoming students, incoming international students, continuing students, and continuing international students.
Tuition fellowships will cover up to 16 credits per semester and do not cover the cost of audited classes. In many cases, fellowships will not cover out-of-state tuition costs after your first year. Read the FAQ page for more information on how to establish residency.
