Tuition Awards & Stipend Support

We are dedicated to supporting our MS-PhD and PhD students financially, allowing you to focus on developing and refining your dissertation research project.

All full-time UR School of Nursing students are 100 percent-funded with tuition waivers and an additional cost-of-living stipend of $25,000. The School provides tuition awards for PhD students for up to 60 credits at the SON tuition rate up to six years of study. The $25,000 stipend is provided for the first four years of study.

Additional financial support is facilitated in following years through assistance with student applications for a wide range of funding for continued PhD study and research. See the full breakdown of tuition and fees.

Scholarship Opportunities

In addition to tuition and stipend support, our students have also earned outside funding to support their education, including:

Part-time study

Financial aid may be available to part-time students depending on credit load. Employees of the University of Rochester may also explore tuition benefits to support part-time study.
