In the article titled “The financial dilemma of students pursuing an atmospheric science graduate degree in the United States” by Card et al. (2020), the University of Arizona failed to accurately self-report their annual graduate research or teaching assistantships stipend for a newly admitted first-year graduate student (without an MS) for the 2020–21 academic year. The University of Arizona reported $19,139.00 as their annual stipend. However, they neglected to account for a graduate students’ summer stipend of $ 7,942.00. This discrepancy was brought to the authors’ and BAMS’s attention in August 2021 by the University of Arizona, and the authors of Card et al. (2020) were requested to revise Table 1 by AMS Publications. This correction resulted in an annual compensation of $27,081.00, and an increase in the effective income from $12,287.31 to $20,389.15 for the University of Arizona.
