Candidates will have obtained overall GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Near their completion of their course work, candidates must pass a three-part doctoral general examination consisting of: a written exam on course materials, a written research plan, and an oral exam.

Not fewer than six months before the expected date of degree completion, candidates will submit to the Program for official review a prospectus outlining the proposed research as approved by an advisory committee of their choosing. Proposals are reviewed for their written and organizational competence, scope of familiarity with the subject and related research, and potential for making a relevant and original contribution to exiting knowledge. The successful prospectus is filed with the Graduate School.

Candidates will write and successfully defend a dissertation based on original research and present and original research project in publishable form. It is expected that at least one journal article will be accepted by the time of the defense and two journal papers will be either submitted or ready for submission.

TA RA Fellowship应有尽有,除了一般的TA RA,还有其他的各种奖学金:

Graduate School Predoctoral Fellowships

Predoctoral fellowships are awarded to doctoral students on the recommendation of the graduate faculty in their program. Award amounts vary considerably. Predoctoral fellowships carry no service commitment. You must be a Regular (not Provisional) full-time doctoral student to be eligible for these fellowships. The Vice Provost for Graduate Education provides funds for this program directly to the academic units. Contact your graduate coordinator for more information about the Predoctoral Fellowship Program.

Outstanding Scholars Program (OSP)

The Graduate School and participating academic departments and programs offer a number of OSP awards for new outstanding doctoral students. Each award includes a fellowship equivalent to a half-time graduate assistantship (there are three rates of pay varying by experience and degree program) for the academic year plus a $2,000 summer stipend, provided by the Graduate School, and a graduate assistantship for the fall and spring semesters, which is provided by the department or program. The award is renewable for two additional years. Each spring, doctoral fields of study recommend applicants who intend to commence graduate study in the subsequent fall semester. The academic quality of the candidate and the nominating program are the prime cirteria for an OSP award.

To nominate an applicant for an OSP award, please complete the on-line OSP cover sheet and forward the completed form along with copies of the applicant's transcripts, GRE scores, applicant's personal statement and letters of recommendation to Joanna Desjardin at Unit 1006 or as a pdf to Joanna.Desjardin@uconn.edu. Nominations must reach Joanna by the deadline date to be considered for an award. A faculty committee will review and select awardees.

Semi-Annual Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship Program

Twice each year, the Graduate School awards a number of $2,000 Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships for advanced students in doctoral programs requiring a dissertation. Their purpose is to enable students to place a high priority on writing the doctoral dissertation as expeditiously as possible. The competitions for these fellowships are held in late fall and late spring each year (pending budgetary approval). To be eligible, the student must have passed the doctoral General Examination and have obtained full approval of the Dissertation Proposal (including the use of any human or animal subjects or stem cells). There is a maximum personal income limit for an applicant to be eligible. The limit is specified for each competition on the application form. The application is posted to the Graduate School Web site approximately October 1st and April 1st. Students are notified of the posting of the application at those times by UConn Listserv e-mail. Application deadlines are in late-November and mid-May respectively. Students based at the Health Center in Farmington are not eligible to

Doctoral Student Travel Funds to Doctoral and M.F.A Student Travel Funds

If you are in a doctoral program, once you complete your General Examination you become eligible for a $1000 travel allowance. This travel fund is made available through your major advisor and can be used for travel to the professional meeting or conference of your and your major advisor's choice. All doctoral students are eligible for this award. The details of the rules governing the program are available here.
