Fully Funded PhD, Social Work, University of Pittsburgh

Doctoral students are supported in years 1 and 2 by research-based graduate student assistantships (GSAs) and in years 3 and 4 by teaching assistantships (TAs). Exceptional students with post-master’s teaching experience and who have defended their overviews may apply for our teaching fellowships (TFs). Both GSAs and TA/TFs provide tuition remission and stipends for the fall, spring and summer terms. There is a 20-hour-per-week work requirement for both GSR and TA appointments.

Students receive GSA or TA support for four years as long as they are making satisfactory progress toward their doctoral degrees. If a fifth year is required, it is usually supported by adjunct teaching. Students are also encouraged to apply for pre-doctoral research traineeships and other awards.
