If you have any questions about your scholarship, please contact the Financial Aid Office of the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences in firstname.lastname@example.org. Press contact:Debra KrosznerDirector GeneralOffice of Public Affairsdebra.email@example.com All Yale PhD students are fully funded. On average, Yale graduate students receive more than $500,000 in scholarships, scholarships, and health benefits during their enrollment. Some final year students also receive funding. Applications for admission to the Doctor of Laws program are open from August 15. The deadline for submission of all documents is December 15. Applicants to the Juris Doctor program must earn a JD degree from a U.S. law school prior to enrolling and the doctoral program. Questions about the program can be directed to Gordon Silverstein, Associate Dean of Graduate Programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We recommend that you deposit your checks directly into a U.S.
bank account at a U.S. bank of your choice. This is the fastest and most convenient way to access your scholarship in any payment period. If you are a new student, you may have to wait until your scholarship period begins and your payroll is created to set up direct deposit of your scholarship cheque. All graduate students receive a bi-weekly scholarship to cover living expenses in New Haven. The minimum annual scholarship for the 2022-2023 academic year is $38,300. As a new PhD student, you will receive your first scholarship payment on August 31. During your first year of PhD, you will receive a total of 25 bi-weekly scholarship payments, two per month, on the 15th and last day of the month (or the Friday before the last day if it falls on a weekend or holiday).
To determine the amount of each payment, divide the total scholarship amount in your letter of admission by 25th PhD. Students receive full tuition waiver, a health scholarship for health insurance coverage, and a scholarship to cover their living expenses year-round, as well as support to attend national and international conferences. Doctoral candidates in law receive a full scholarship and living allowance equal to an amount determined by the Graduate School, basic health coverage from Yale, and a health prize that covers the cost of hospitalization and specialized insurance. Financial support is conditional on the student making satisfactory academic progress. The Doctor of Laws programme is jointly administered by the Graduate School and the Law School. For more information about financial aid and living expenses in New Haven, visit the graduate school`s website. Yale Law School is providing significant funding to launch the program this fall, offering approximately 45 to 50 full scholarships to eligible Young Women students. Students who meet the financial requirements will automatically receive the scholarship, starting with courses in 2023, 2024 and 2025 and in the future. Thanks to the incredible generosity of Soledad `92 and Robert, David `78 and Patricia Nierenberg, and Gene `73 and Carol Ludwig, the law school is also able to staff the program and ensure that future YLS students will benefit from this life-changing initiative for generations to come. Amount of student financial need minus unit loans3 (based on class year) = YLS Institutional Scholarships Students interested in a career as a law professor should generally expect to enter the workforce during their third year in the program. PhD students have access to the same wide range of support in this endeavor that Yale Law School currently offers to its students, alumni, and fellows entering the law school market. Otherwise, students spend the third year completing their dissertation and, in many cases, completing a second teaching experience.
Students are generally expected to complete the program after three years, but requests to extend the program beyond three years are considered on a case-by-case basis. In such cases, funding may be limited. Please note: Personal loans are not eligible for federal loan forgiveness programs, although they are covered by Yale Law School`s COAP loan forgiveness program.
