May I request a waiver of the UW application fee?

An application fee of $75 (plus an additional $6 processing fee for international applicants) is mandated by state statute for application to any graduate degree program and may not be waived. The fee is good for one year only and must be paid again if the applicant is re–applying.

If an applicant is currently enrolled in a UW—Madison graduate degree program (having already paid the application fee for that program), the applicant is not required to pay the fee for the Business Ph.D. application. Applicants who are applying to more than one graduate program in the same semester are required to pay the fee to one program only. Students should contact the Ph.D. Coordinator for further information if currently enrolled in any UW—Madison graduate program or are applying to more than one UW—Madison graduate program.

How do I apply for financial aid?

All applicants to the Business Ph.D. Programs are automatically considered for funding packages. In general, all students admitted receive a full funding package.

How long is funding support for the Ph.D. Program available?

Students should expect to receive funding support through the department, the Wisconsin School of Business, the Graduate School, or the university throughout their course of study assuming that they remain in good standing academically and make satisfactory progress toward degree completion. In general, students are guaranteed four academic years of support and may receive additional research or teaching support if needed. Some appointments may require specific teaching or research responsibilities. Summer support is frequently available in addition to support provided during the academic years. Individual and family health insurance plans are provided with most forms of support. Packages may vary from year to year and department to department.
