Graduate Assistants & Tuition Scholars

There are two types of competitive, merit-based funding available in most graduate programs for matriculated degree-seeking students who are studying full-time: Tuition Scholarships, which provide tuition remission for the total number of credits required for the degree; and Graduate Assistantships, which include a stipend along with tuition remission. International students as well as students from the US are eligible for these merit-based funding options.

With the support of the Office of the President, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is able to offer a limited number of Graduate Fellowships, which provide full tuition remission and a stipend.

A few other University programs and offices have a very limited number of graduate assistantships. For more information, see this web page.
