The financial support for our graduate students have improved dramatically during the last couple of years.  We are now able to offer very competitive stipends to our Ph.D. students, and you should also know that we are enjoying relatively low costs of living in Manhattan, which should make graduate studies at Kansas State particularly appealing. 


Our basic stipend provides an annual salary of close to $19,000, but we have many opportunities for add-on stipends (these are awarded on academic merits), which can raise the basic stipend up to an additional $5,000.  For more information about financial support contact Prof Dr. Christer Aakeröy (aakeroy@ksu.edu) or the department (chemdept@ksu.edu).
