Funding

Students enrolled full-time in Laney Graduate School doctoral programs are eligible for full or partial tuition scholarships. In addition, full-time doctoral students may receive stipends and/or salaries from university or external sources, which are paid through the university's payroll system.

Provided below are helpful resources for financial assistance and funding:

  • Overview of Financial Assistance: A limited number of students are admitted to the History PhD program each year. For 2020-21 all incoming students receive a stipend of at least $31,775, tuition scholarship, and a health insurance subsidy that covers 100% of the cost of Emory's student health insurance for five years, contingent upon satisfactory academic performance. In addition, the Laney Gradaute School supports outstanding applicants with three types of admissions fellowships.

  • Admissions Fellowships: 1) George W. Woodruff Fellowship, 2) Centennial Scholars Fellowship, 3) Tam Institute for Jewish Studies Fellowship, and 4) Laney Graduate Fellowship, which supplement the base stipend provided by the Laney Graduate School, are offered on a competitive basis. Programs nominate students for these fellowships based on their qualifications, and nominees are reviewed by faculty committees at the Laney Graduate School level. Once the program is alerted to these decisions admitted students are notified. All fellowship awards are made on the basis of merit and are renewed annually contingent upon satisfactory academic performance.

  • Professional Development Support Funds: are for research, training, and conferences. Of particular note, early in a student’s career these funds can support research, assist with dissertation prospectus preparation, and facilitate successful application for major external grants.
