2.2 LGS Awards

Click on a topic below for more information about:

(A) Tuition Scholarships

Tuition scholarships may cover partial or full tuition. These scholarships are awards for tuition credits only. They are not cash and cannot be converted to another purpose or paid directly to students. 

Doctoral students in their eighth year and beyond who have been granted an extension will receive partial tuition scholarships and are responsible for $1,250 per semester in tuition. This policy applies to students who started their program in the fall semester of 2017 or later. Students who started before then remain covered by the policy in effect when they first enrolled (refer to Academic Affairs, Section 2.4 Dissertation Completion Time).

(B) Student Stipends

Doctoral student stipends are disbursed monthly on the last business day of the month. Eligibility for stipend support expires when a student graduates, withdraws, is not enrolled, is terminated, or otherwise becomes ineligible. Doctoral student stipends are disbursed over a 12-month period from September - August.

(C) Electronic Stipend Deposit Advice

All doctoral students receiving a Laney Graduate School stipend must enroll in Direct Deposit in order to receive funds. Several days before funds are deposited into accounts, the University will send email notification that the deposit is forthcoming. Funds will be deposited on the last business day of the month, not on the day the email notification is sent.

(D) Termination or Suspension of Stipend Support

Eligibility for student stipends ends when a student graduates, withdraws, is not enrolled, or is terminated. Unused stipends cannot be deferred or reserved. Stipend support for a student on an approved leave of absence will be suspended.
