Fellowships, Research and Teaching Assistantships

Roughly 90% of joint doctoral students receive stipends. Assuming reasonable progress towards completing degree requirements, joint doctoral students receive stipends for a minimum of four years. Only a few students are admitted with the understanding that they have external financial support and related work obligations. Additional stipends may be available in the summer in conjunction with externally funded research projects being conducted by SDSU faculty.

US students entering SDSU with out-of-state residency are required to establish State of California residency immediately upon starting the program. This is accomplished by obtaining a State of California driver’s license and registering to vote.

Teaching and research duties are assigned for 20 hours a week for 17 weeks in both the Fall and Spring semester.
