Committee on Theater & Performance Studies Graduate Program

Incoming doctoral students receive a comprehensive 6-year funding package to support them in their scholarly and pedagogical training and are eligible to be registered for up to 8 years. The 6-year funding package includes:

  • An academic year stipend (and teaching remuneration)
  • 5 summer stipends
  • Full tuition aid
  • Health insurance premium aid

Renewal of this award is contingent on satisfactory academic progress. Students are expected to reach candidacy by the start of year 6 to remain in the program. Those students who remain registered in year 7 and/or 8 receive continued financial support, which includes:

  • Full tuition aid
  • Health insurance premium aid

Additional fellowships and awards are available to support language study, conference travel, and research travel.

Students entering the TAPS option in the University’s Masters Program in the Humanities (MAPH) may apply for several fellowships in addition to applying for work-study opportunities. See the Financial Aid page at the MAPH website for more details.

Students may also want to refer to the Division’s Graduate Student Grant/Fellowship Blog or access the UChicagoGRAD Fellowship Database.

Project grants and additional funding opportunities can be found at UChicago Arts Grants & Funding.
