The pursuit of a doctoral degree requires a significant investment of time, energy, and resources. There are a number of financial aid opportunities to help students fund their doctoral studies. The form of such aid varies, however, and could include the following:
- University-based fellowships
- JACSW-based research assistantships
- Faculty-based research assistantships
- Teaching assistantships
- Tuition waivers
- External funding sources such as private foundations
