Financial Aid

There are three components of student financial support:

  • stipend
  • tuition
  • fees

The academic and financial year runs from September 1 to June 30 in year 1, and then July 1 to June 30 in subsequent years. In general, students are supported in their first two years of doctoral training by BSDM. Beginning in their third year, the Dissertation Advisor funds the student’s stipend and fees; BSDM funds the student’s tuition. For years 5 and beyond, the Dissertation Advisor funds all student expenses: stipend, tuition, and fees.
