Hey, my PhD was paid for by the taxpayers of Australia, and my 
stipend allowed me to put down a deposit on a house, as well as 
feeding and clothing me. I didn't have a car, however; luckily 
Melbourne has excellent inner city public transport, and it's 
possible to bike places without getting killed if you pick your 
routes carefully.

I believe Barbara had a similar deal at Texas U at Austin for her JD, 
although she had some TA duties.
