The deadline for applications is January 10. Applicants, particularly those in need of financial aid, are encouraged to apply as early as possible. It is particularly important for applicants without recent GRE exam scores to have prepared for and taken the GRE before submitting an application. Approximately five-to-seven students are admitted each year.

A limited number of graduate fellowships, providing for tuition and a stipend, are awarded each year. Other special fellowships as well as partial financial support are also given when possible. All financial aid is awarded on a competitive basis. Renewal of financial aid is done annually subject to availability, satisfactory academic progress, and satisfactory and timely completion of assignments as teaching or research assistants.
