Recipients of funding offers who can contribute to the diversity of Stony Brook may be eligible for the Turner Fellowship . Those with outstanding academic promise may be eligible for the Graduate Council Fellowship . These fellowships award an additional $30,000 over the course of three years to their recipients, along with tuition waiver and stipend. The cohorts entering our program in the fall of 2015, 2016, and 2017 have had Turner Fellows among their cloudy trophies hung.
If you live abroad and are unable to attend an interview in person you may, at the discretion of the Admissions Tutor, be offered the opportunity of a distance interview. If you are selected for interview in this manner you will be contacted (normally by email) in order to arrange a suitable time for an interview. This will be conducted on Skype, telephone or by ‘live’ email exchange and will normally be based upon material you will have been asked to submit in advance. The interview will be conducted by the Admissions Tutor in liaison with a colleague who will have sight of your submitted materials.
