1.5 Money

leave a comment »

Here is some good news for your parents; going to grad school in linguistics doesn’t mean more years of shelling out ridiculous tuition. You’ve probably heard about people who get huge student loans in order to go to graduate school — fortunately, you will most likely not be one of those people. In linguistics, schools generally cover your tuition plus a stipend for your entire graduate career. Yes, that means they’re giving you money. For some programs, like Stanford and Penn, the school must commit to funding you for five years (generally that means your entire time in school) before admitting you. Other programs commit to funding you for three years or so, and then you need to apply for funding again or get a fellowship. Either way, you’re going to be getting money.
