Scholarship assistance for the Ph.D. program is limited; we are able to provide tuition waivers, financial assistance and paid research positions for a small number of candidates, either in their first year or at the dissertation writing stage. Accordingly, candidates should budget sufficient funds to cover at least two years of study in the program. The average completion time for the degree at present is 3-4 years.

International applicants for the Asian and Comparative Law Ph.D. program are automatically considered for tuition waivers and paid research positions. Students in exceptional financial need may submit a statement indicating this with their application. Applicants seeking financial assistance should also investigate other funding sources such as employers, government agencies and foundations, as well as organizations listed on the Financial Aid Offices' International Student web page

For U.S. students, educational loans are available through the Financial Aid Office.
