PhD pay

I have a new statistical article in Profession and a companion op-ed in Chronicle of Higher Ed reflecting research I conducted last year into English PhD stipends. I learned that many English PhD candidates make only $25,000 (the national median), or less. A cost-of-living adjustment makes many programs located in expensive cities and suburbs look less generous.

I thank the many Directors of Graduate Studies and other administrators and department leaders who shared information and discussed my report with me prior to publication.
