Financial Aid and Fellowships
Regions & Themes
JSIS supports students in the program by prioritizing a limited number of TA positions for our Ph.D. students. Our goal is to guarantee all accepted Ph.D. students twelve TAship quarters during the first five years of the Ph.D. Program. UW TAships require about 220 hours of assigned work per quarter. In addition, where funding allows, JSIS will attempt to provide RAships for first year Ph.D. students. Ph.D. students are encouraged to seek additional funding opportunities through JSIS Centers and programs.
In addition, UW has other available funding sources and fellowships. Applicants are encouraged to explore these options.
