Students seeking financial support for senior thesis research or junior independent work, presentations at discipline-specific conferences, unpaid internships, summer programs and special projects can identify funding opportunities and submit applications through the Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE).
The Bryan Fund offers up to $4000 for travel and equipment needs of graduate students during their period of enrollment (Years 1-5 for Composition and Years 1-6 for Musicology). The Dean's Fund for Scholarly Travel provides support (up to $600/year) to enrolled graduate students (Years 3 - DCE1) invited to present a scholarly research paper at a conference or meeting. A list of other available funding is available through the Graduate School.
The Graduate School offers intensive summer reading courses in selected foreign languages, which the Department subsidizes. Students pursuing other languages also qualify for Department subsidies, up to the cost of University courses. Subsidies are subject to the approval of the DGS.
