Currently all students who need funding are offered a financial aid package that may include both fellowship and teaching assistantship support with tuition. Students are required to apply for outside fellowships for work on their dissertation. When possible, fellowships with tuition are offered to incoming students. After the first year, most students will work as a teaching assistant in one of the introductory courses. More advanced students will teach a Freshman Writing Seminar in their own area of interest. This is sponsored by the Freshman Writing Program, which conducts a training course for graduate students. Continuing fellowships are available to students beginning their dissertation research. Cornell offers other fellowship opportunities to minority students and those in selected areas of study. Other funding opportunities include Residence Hall Assistantships. There is also some funding from the Arts College and the Graduate School to support travel to conferences and research travel expenses.
