just as an aside, is courant generous on funding? i get the impression that funding for PhD is limited as it strongly urges applicants to source external financial support...

Where does the money come from for the other 3 months? well, the answer is you have to find on your own. There are some teaching opportunities which pays like 6k for 6 weeks of teaching (according to a recent phd alumnus). If you have an advisor, and he/she has funding, then you can also get something. OR you can go out to find some internship opportunities. Basically, they expect you to outsourcing by yourself, unlike many other schools, fundings are offered on a 12-month basis.
