We provide financial support for all of our PhD students. Every School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering PhD student making satisfactory progress towards his or her degree receives a competitive stipend and a tuition waiver that drops the cost of tuition to $25 per semester. In return for the stipend, PhD students are expected to serve as teaching assistants for three or four semesters during their time at Georgia Tech, depending upon the needs of the School.
Expected Costs for PhD Students, 2016-2017
Cost of Living
It is important to remember that Atlanta has one of the lowest costs of living of any city or town that is home to a top chemical & biomolecular engineering program.
