The SocDoc Program is able to offer some support to incoming students to help offset the cost of tuition. Financial support is determined along with the general admissions offer.
Depending on the availability of funds and the recommendations of the faculty admissions committee, department support may be given in the form of fellowship awards, teaching assistantship positions, readership positions, or summer research monies. Support packages that are awarded by the department for the first year of study are not guaranteed for the second year.
The Film & Digital Media Department is not able to offer production-specific funding to Social Documentation students. The department will connect students with divisional resources that may assist students in locating and applying for suitable grant funding for project productions.
