Graduate Assistantship Funding Opportunities

One of the most common sources of funding is the graduate assistantship. Assistantship appointments provide financial support to a graduate student who engages in teaching, research, and/or service. Departments and programs generally make assistantship offers during the admissions process; however, current students may be eligible for an assistantship in their program if funding is available.

Graduate assistantships may include a tuition waiver, health insurance, and a monthly salary. Students should contact their department or graduate program to learn more about assistantship opportunities. If you receive additional awards in conjunction with financial aid or assistantship, such as a scholarship, fellowship, or other stipend, you may need to fill out an Academic Year Revision Request to have your cost of attendance reviewed by a Financial Aid advisor.
