Financing Graduate Education
Financial Aid and Student Loans
Many graduate students are eligible
for financial aid and student loans. Visit our Financial Aid and Scholarships section for more information.
Assistantships and Fellowships
In addition, all Graduate School applicants are automatically considered for teaching assistantships. Departments, programs or individual researchers having funding seek students to work on their projects. We encourage students applying to include their need and experience in the Statement of Purpose. Financial awards are primarily granted to students starting in the fall. Graduate students wishing to be considered for financial assistance should submit their application by March 15. Information on financial support for specific programs are available on the Graduate Education Programs of Study pages.
Annually, the Office of Graduate Education extends the call to faculty to nominate students for various fellowships for the following academic year. The material is usually due in early February. More detailed information on Assistantships and Fellowships are available at our Graduate Education webpage.
Scholarships are a great way to finance graduate education. The following resources can help you find potential scholarships.
