IPIBS and Your Application: The Departments review applications and submit potential candidates for Fellowship awards to the IPIBS Committee. If selected, the Director of the IPIBS will confirm the offer of an IPIBS Fellowship in a letter to you. Current support packages consist of an annual stipend of $25,000, full waiver of tuition and fees, plus health care benefits. Every student admitted to the Ph.D. Program can expect to receive continued financial support for the entire period of graduate study, provided he or she remains a resident and makes satisfactory progress in meeting degree requirements.
Acceptance of Fellowship Offer: IPIBS will notify the Graduate School of your acceptance once received. Students supported by an IPIBS Fellowship may not accept any additional employment during the term of the fellowship unless granted specific written authorization to do so by the IPIBS Executive Committee. Accepting the IPIBS Fellowship requires that you complete the core curriculum integrated throughout the curricula of the five departmental, discipline-based programs of study. To retain the fellowship if switching between departments you should contact the IPIBS director.
Students with Advanced Standing: A limited number of Fellowships may be offered to students with advanced-standing, in which case, taking the IPIBS core curriculum may be waived and Fellowships modified accordingly. All such applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Timeline: Only complete applications are reviewed. For best consideration, application materials should be received by February 15th (Ph.D.’s) or by March 15th (Master’s). Ph.D. applicants are encouraged to apply early, as Fellowships are limited. Applicants interested in an early decision should submit all required materials by December 15th.
