Tuition and Financial Assistance
All applicants to Ph.D. programs are considered for full-tuition scholarships and stipends. Master's programs provide limited financial support. Please contact the department of the Master's program you are interested in.
Complete or partial tuition remission may be available to qualified students on a per-need basis. Requests for tuition remission should be made at the time of application.
Scholarships and Fellowships
Several types of graduate fellowships and scholarships are provided by the University to well-qualified students. Application for a scholarship or fellowship is made by checking off the appropriate box on the Graduate Application. Some part-time employment is available in the various offices and departments of the University.
Research scholarships or fellowships may be awarded to graduate students who are pursuing a full-time doctoral program on campus. Each department allocates its own research fellowships, usually to continuing students.
Four- or nine-month teaching assistantships may be offered to some full-time graduate students (primarily Ph.D. candidates). Teaching assistants are assigned various duties according to the needs of the department, and normally involve working 17 hours a week on teaching-related activities.
Students interested in applying for financial assistance in the form of student loans should visit the Office of Financial Assistance website or call (508) 793-7478.
