Fellowship and Assistantship Stipends

Spring 2023 Stipend Payments

University Fellowships–Ph.D. students should receive their spring 2023 fellowship stipends by January 23. If you have not received your fellowship stipend by January 24, contact your graduate field assistant or the Graduate School Fellowship Office at grad_funding@cornell.edu to ask for a processing update. As a reminder, fellowship checks are generally paid in one payment at the beginning of each semester as a bursar refund. You can enroll in direct deposit for fellowship refunds here.  

Assistantships (TA, GRA, GA, RA)–Students appointed on an assistantship for spring 2023 will receive stipend payments on a semimonthly pay calendar, beginning on January 15. If you have not received your payment by January 16, please reach out to your graduate field assistant (GFA) to remedy the delay. Assistantship stipend payments are paid in semi-monthly increments throughout the semester in Workday. The first and last payments are partial payments; you can find your specific payment details in your appointment letter. Your GFA can help you if you need a copy of your appointment letter for the semester or need directions to enroll in direct deposit.
