Admission and Funding


The Slavic Department admits two students into the program each year. Our faculty helps them design a program of study and develop a research trajectory with their individual scholarly needs and interests. 

Choosing from a wide range of courses, entering students arrange their programs in consultation with the director of graduate studies and faculty advisers. 

Tuition and Fees

Successful candidates receive a stipend of full tuition and fees together with a five-year fellowship that includes summer salary.


Candidates accepted into the program receive full funding (full tuition, health insurance, and living stipend) for five years. As part of this award – and as part of their professional training – students normally teach at least two semesters of literature, language, or both, usually after the general examinations.
