Financial Support

Compensation for 2023-24 will be $36,500 plus a relocation bonus of $2,000 to be used for costs associated with relocating to Nashville. Your award package also covers 100% of University tuition, all student fees, and health, dental, and a yearly eye exam.

Starting in Fall 2023, the BRET office will give incoming students a laptop computer.

We also have a Candidacy Student Success Supplement, which provides $500 to all doctoral students who achieve candidacy.

Our stipend is comparable to the amount given at similar institutions when adjusted for the cost of living.
