Graduate Scholarships

Graduate Assistantships fund a portion of tuition for up to four semesters, not including summer terms. The Assistantship requires that the awardee be attending as a full-time graduate student (enrolled in at least 9 credits each semester) and participate in 10 to 19 hours a week (depending on the award) in research, academic, or administrative experiences during the semester, outside the degree requirements. Graduate Assistants will work with faculty and scholars in their field and be assigned activities by the program director, which will add value to development as a student. The Assistantship is renewable for up to four semesters, contingent on remaining in good academic standing. Assitantships are available to domestic and international students. The Graduate Assistantship covers tuition only; fees, books, and living expenses are the responsibility of the student.

If you would like to be considered for a graduate assistantship, please refer to your specific program for details.
