Financing your Ph.D.

Financing Your Ph.D.

The pursuit of a doctoral degree is a significant investment of time, energy, and of course financial resources. Boston College provides financial support for its doctoral students to ensure that earning a Ph.D. from BC is a worthwhile investment in your future.

The current level of financial support for Ph.D. students in the Carroll School of Management includes full tuition remission for all required coursework, as well as a competitive stipend of up to $35,875 USD per year. Students in good standing may receive this support for a maximum of five years.

In return for this support, you will serve as a research assistant for 16 hours a week during the first two years of the Ph.D. program, and act as a research and/or teaching assistant in the following years.

This generous level of support is based on the fact that students are expected to devote their full energies to the Ph.D. program during the entire calendar year.
