The Institute for Humane Studies is offering a few opportunities for financial assistance to students applying to PhD programs.
  1. IHS's PhD Application Fee Waiver reimburses up to $300 in graduate school application fees to offset the cost of applying to multiple programs.
  2. IHS's PhD Scholarship offers $1,500 for students already enrolled in doctoral programs.
We're looking to support students who are excited about asking hard questions and exploring the principles that advance freedom and prosperity in society.
