The Urban and Regional Planning program is committed to funding doctoral students for four years of the expected time to complete the degree, including a stipend, tuition, and health care during the academic year. We encourage students to apply for additional funding from independent sources. The Rackham Graduate School provides resources on data and technical assistance, along with funding opportunities.
The Rackham Graduate School provides several fellowships and grants to support doctoral students, including support for conference travel, research projects, international work, and summer support.
Funding support is sometimes available through other units at the University of Michigan, such as the following:
