Fordham English PhD Now Offers Six Years of Funding

The English Department is pleased to announce changes to the admissions requirements and funding structure of its PhD program:  

  • For students admitted who hold a BA, we now offer a six-year fellowship package that includes a tuition waiver and an initial stipend of $23,140 (we continue to offer a five-year fellowship package to students admitted who hold an MA).
  • Additional years of funding are available through our competitive distinguished fellowships (up to $30,450).
  • Many of our own recent PhDs receive postdoctoral fellowships at Fordham.
  • We no longer require the GRE Subject Test in Literature for admission to any graduate program.
  • We no longer require an MA for admission into the PhD program.
