Financial support is provided through twelve-month teaching and research assistantships which include a full tuition scholarship. Support is normally for a period of five years, by which time students are expected to have completed or nearly completed their course of study. Qualified students will be encouraged to apply to government and private foundations for prestigious fellowships. The department and the Dean of Graduate Studies will aid in this endeavor.
The College assists graduate students in arranging for appropriate housing, either in College facilities such as the North Park Graduate Housing complex, or in private accommodations in the Hanover area. Married and single students may apply for apartments in Sachem Village, a College student housing complex located two miles south of the campus.
All students are eligible for the Dartmouth Student Group Health Insurance Plan, and for year-round comprehensive ambulatory and infirmary services at the College infirmary.
