Applications are invited for doctoral study in the Department of Urban Planning
and Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago to begin in August 2012.
For the academic year 2012, the Department will fund up to 3 qualified students,
each receiving four-year funding to engage in dissertation research that
advances understanding of one or more aspects of community disparities as they
relate to urban planning and policy.
The aim of the Ph.D. in Urban Planning and Policy program is to train students
for advanced research and faculty positions within institutions of higher
education. It is intended to serve full-time students. The doctoral program is
divided into four segments: core, major coursework, career training and
dissertation. Students are expected to complete the core course requirements and
most of major course work by the beginning of the third year. Students are
required to take the prelim examination during the summer that follows their
second full year in the program.
The selected students will each receive four years of funding to cover tuition
and certain fees subject to satisfactory progress in both coursework and
research. Tuition differential will be directly paid by the Department of Urban
Planning and Policy. Students will also receive a stipend for up to 11 months a
year. Initially, the amount of the stipend is equivalent to a 25% research
assistant appointment, which translates to approximately $800 per month. After
passing the preliminary examination, the stipend will be increased to a 50%
appointment equivalent. Total value of this financial aid is over $123,000 for
in-state and over $171,000 for out-of-state students.
Applications are due December 1, 2011.
