Our doctoral students are fully funded by Henry Mitchell MacCracken Fellowships, which provide a living stipend and full tuition for five years: three years of course work followed by two years of dissertation writing. The MacCracken can also be enhanced by a dean's supplement reserved for historically underrepresented minority groups.
At the completion of the MacCracken, several post-MacCracken fellowships, including the Dean's Dissertation Fellowship, the Patricia Dunn Lehrman Fellowship, the Torch Fellowship, and the Elaine Brody Fellowship in the Humanities, are available on a competitive basis. For an overview of Graduate Fellowships and Awards, see GSAS Fellowships and Assistantships (also click "Financing Graduate Education" at the bottom of that page for individual fellowship descriptions). Also, see the NYU Comp Lit "Fellowships and Awards" page.
