Each academic year, scholarships are available for outstanding PhD candidates in each of the Program's four doctoral programs. The best students with a scholarship will have the opportunity to conduct some of their doctoral research at MIT.

Descriptions of the FCT scholarships and stipends can be found at FCT & Fellowships and Grants Regulations 2010 and FCT & Stipends 2009. (Note that on these pages, BD refers to PhD scholarships.)

A few corporate scholarships are available in the Transportation Systems Master’s degree course (CTIS); they only cover tuition fees. In extraordinary circumstances, candidates who can demonstrate serious need may be able to obtain further funding to support living expenses.
