Emory Ups Base Graduate Stipend by 29%

October 4, 2018

Emory University is increasing its base graduate student stipend in the Laney Graduate School from $24,000 to $31,000 as part of a bigger academic excellence initiative, it announced this week. The move represents an investment of $40 million spanning five years.

“This enhanced support for Ph.D. students affirms our commitment to fostering a culture of research and innovation that attracts and supports future thought leaders of the highest order,” President Claire E. Sterk and Dwight A. McBride, provost, wrote in a campus message about the increase. “Emory’s ability to compete among our peer and aspirant peer universities for the most talented Ph.D. students will improve our ability to recruit and retain distinguished faculty. Talented doctoral students and distinguished faculty are both integral to fueling our academic ambitions.” The previously announced academic excellence initiative, called One Emory: Engaged for Impact, is based on four “pillars”: faculty excellence, academic community, innovation through scholarship and creative expression, and surrounding Atlanta as a “gateway to the world.”
