We want to make it possible for talented and motivated students to choose Penn Arts & Sciences and devote their time and energy to learning and research. That’s why all admitted PhD students receive 12-month fellowships for X semesters/years. In addition, Penn offers other forms of financial support that students may pursue.
Overview: Financing a Graduate Education at Penn
The Graduate Student Resource Guide and the Policies and Procedures manual provide useful links to the financial assistance available at the University of Pennsylvania. The Office of Student Financial Services offers more specific information and assistance to graduate students seeking to finance their education, including loans to help with start-up costs, such as the purchase of a computer or filling the gap until the first stipend check comes at the end of September.
