Assistantships and Funding
The three principal types of financial assistance are fellowships, assistantships, and work study. Fellowships are awarded through the Graduate School. Only students with a grade point average above 3.5 are considered for a fellowship, and other indicators must be similarly favorable.
Graduate assistantships provide stipend and tuition remission. All available assistantships are controlled by individual faculty members who may or may not have an open assistantship to offer at a particular time.
Prospective applicants should correspond directly with individual faculty members to inquire about assistantships, and applicants should indicate desire to be considered for assistantships in their statement of interest letter.
Graduate funding is decentralized and prospective applicants are encouraged to visit The Graduate School Funding page to learn more about funding programs.
