Funding/Financial Opportunities

The majority of our students are supported for the duration of their M.S. or Ph.D. programs by research assistantships, University fellowships, by faculty grants. Financial assistance for graduate students is available from many sources.

Incoming and continuing students are encouraged to consider applying for fellowships, grants, or awards.

Several awards are available to graduate students in our program. Recipients of these awards are selected by the department's Awards Committee. Awards are presented from available funds to qualifying graduate students.

Financial opportunities for graduate students also include hourly employment, assistantships, fellowships, and loans.
