graduate romanic association
the center for italian studies
All students admitted to the Graduate Program in Italian
receive a Benjamin Franklin Fellowship, which guarantees five
years of financial support (tuition remission, Penn's student
health insurance, and a stipend--$23,700 in 2012-13) to students
who continue in good academic standing. The fellowship includes
two years of undergraduate teaching.
Students who have finished all pre-dissertation requirements
and who no longer receive fellowship support are eligible for a lectureship.
These awards provide a stipend for every course taught and may cover
the dissertation tuition. The Department also has a small number of
one-year, non-renewable full-time lectureships reserved for recent graduates.
Both forms of financial support described above are
awarded on the basis of academic merit. For need-based financial
assistance, such as student loans, please contact Student Financial
Services at (215) 898-1988; E-mail: SFSMail@sfs.upenn.edu.
