Financial Support for New Graduate Students

Three types of financial support are available for graduate students: fellowships, research assistantships (RAs) and teaching assistantships (TAs). In general these forms of support provide a regular stipend, waiver of all or part of tuition and fees, and a health insurance and benefit package. All students who apply by the December 15 deadline will automatically be considered, on a competitive basis, for pre-awards (i.e., awards offered in advance of a student's enrollment) of financial support, often through a combination of fellowship and assistantship. Students who enroll without a pre-award are still eligible for research and/or teaching assistantships, which can be obtained at any time during one's academic program. International students should also contact the office of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) for counseling, advising, financial aid, career and immigration status services.
