Graduate Assistantships

Competitively-based graduate assistantships, which include tuition benefits and stipends, are awarded to second year students on the basis of merit, with support available for first-year students given funding opportunities. Students who are awarded assistantships are required to work 20 hours per week. Additional employment outside the university is not permitted while the student holds an assistantship. Money is available for research support and conference participation for all graduate students.
