Financial support from both university funding and private bequests enable the History Department to offer our Ph.D. students both tuition and a stipend of about $25,000 for up to five years and our M.A. students $20,000 for up to two years. We additionally provide $4,500 to Ph.D. students for the summer following their second year, to provide financial support as they prepare for the fall qualifying exams. It should be added, too, that Newark is a small college town that has a relatively low cost-of-living.
The Department provides teaching assistantships, fellowships, and tuition scholarships, awarded competitively. The fellowships and assistantships include tuition remission for the fall and spring semester plus a living expense stipend. Teaching assistantships normally require students to work up to 20 hours per week, leading discussion sections and grading in lower-level survey courses, or, more rarely, grading for a large, unsectioned lecture course. Fellows do not usually perform any additional duties aside from their academic studies.
Please note: Financial awards can be withdrawn if students fail to progress satisfactorily.
The History Department is pleased to grant numerous awards to graduate students to recognize excellence in teaching, sustain summer research travel, and reward outstanding academic achievements. These awards include:
* E. Lyman Stewart Summer Internships
* Caesar Rodney Fellowships from the General Society of Colonial Wars
* Colonial Dames Scholarship from the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America
* Bassett-Ferguson Scholarship for the History of Technology
* Edward Ezell Fellowship for the History of Firearms and Technology
* Jean B. Whyte Endowed Fund Scholarship for the History of the Judeo-Christian Ethic in America
* Delaware Public Humanities Institute (DELPHI) summer fellowships

* Stanley J. Goldfus Memorial Award (For an Outstanding Teaching Assistant)
* John A. Munroe Memorial Award (For the student who has excelled in Developing and Teaching her/his own course)
* William H. Williams Scholarship Award (For the student who has demonstrated outstanding scholarly work in the area of American History during the period 1607-1865)
Our students regularly receive University Graduate Fellow Awards, University Graduate Scholar Awards, and University Dissertation Awards from the Office of Graduate and Professional Education and compete successfully for prestigious fellowships from the Smithsonian Institution, the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, and other regional and national research institutes.
