Is there family health insurance for graduate students? If so, is it included in the stipend?

Currently the University provides individual health insurance to graduate students with eligible academic appointments. It is not included in the stipend for TAs/TFs/GSAs/GSRs. Fellows are eligible to enroll and their stipends are typically increased to cover the cost of individual coverage, it is then deducted from their stipend.

Please describe why someone applying to graduate school who is interested in a female-friendly department should choose your department.

Female graduate students have found our department to be an egalitarian, open environment for studying physics. Living in Pittsburgh is highly affordable, with excellent public and University transit systems (free for students) and a wide variety of cultural opportunities (music, theatre, museums, etc.) The University of Pittsburgh Department of Physics and Astronomy has long been at the forefront in the participation of women in science; Professor Emeritus Elizabeth U. Baranger was co-founder (with Vera Kistiakowsky) of Women in Science and Engineering. The Department and the University have a variety of fellowship programs targeted towards female students in science, including the Mary E. Warga Predoctoral Fellowship, the Elizabeth U. Baranger Predoctoral Fellowship, and the Provost's Development Fund. More information on related activities at Pitt is available at the website of the Provost's Advisory Committee on Women's Concerns, http://www.provost.pitt.edu/pacwc/

Please include the name of faculty or staff member and an email they can be reached at for further questions.
