Financial Aid

Financing an education can be a seemingly overwhelming task. The DUSON Financial Aid Office is here to assist students by guiding them through the financial aid process, including funding options, applications, and deadlines.

DUSON participates in several financial aid programs that can help pay for education expenses via scholarships, federal loans, employment programs, and other resources. The financial aid awards typically consist of a combination of these sources.

PhD students receive financial support to cover full tuition and fees, health insurance and a monthly stipend for up to five years and may contact theĀ Duke University Graduate School for more information.
