Financial Aid for the Ph.D. in Latin American and Iberian Cultures Program

Students admitted to the Ph.D. in Latin American and Iberian Cultures program are offered five years of financial support, which includes tuition remission, student health insurance, a stipend, and summer research funding. Continued support is contingent on maintaining good academic standing as defined both by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) and by the Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures (LAIC). Students who enter with advanced standing, (i.e., those who have done graduate work in the discipline previously), are guaranteed four years of financial support.

The program includes also three years of undergraduate teaching of language and culture courses. Financial support as described above is renewed yearly on the basis of academic and pedagogical performance.  Please review the financial aid information provided by GSAS and the relevant pages of the GSAS’s Ph.D. Student Handbook.

The department and GSAS also award limited funds to students who are invited to deliver a paper in a scholarly conference of merit.
