Our doctoral students are fully funded by Henry Mitchell MacCracken Fellowships, which provide a living stipend and full tuition for five academic years: three years of course work followed by two years of dissertation writing. The MacCracken can also be enhanced by the GSAS Dean's Doctoral Fellowship, a competitive award reserved for historically underrepresented minority groups.
At the completion of the MacCracken, several post-MacCracken fellowships, including the Dean's Dissertation Fellowship, the NYU Center for the Humanities Doctoral Fellowship, and the Elaine Brody Fellowship in the Humanities, are available on a competitive basis. For an overview of these competitions, see GSAS Fellowships and Awards. Also, see the NYU Comp Lit Fellowships and Awards page for information on summer funding and department travel grants, language and research acquisition grants, and other fellowship opportunities.
