All students admitted to the Jurisprudence and Social Policy Ph.D. program are awarded multi-year funding packages which include either fellowships from the Graduate Division or JSP’s own Selznick Fellowships (named for Philip Selznick who co-founded the program with Sanford Kadish). Additionally, these funding packages include teaching assistantships in the undergraduate Legal Studies Program which provide a fee remission and salary.
Students are also strongly encouraged to also apply to private foundations and government agencies that support graduate study at American universities. Students in the JSP program have been particularly successful in obtaining Mellon, Javits Fulbright and NSF fellowships. See the Graduate Division website for additional information on these and other extramural funding opportunities.
Those applying for Graduate Division Fellowships will automatically be considered for all the financial assistance administered by the program.
