We expect to provide funding to every full-time student in the PhD program. The following are three primary sources of Graduate Assistantship (GA) funding:

  • GAs specifically appropriated for the PhD program. All full-time students who apply are automatically considered for these assistantships.
  • GAs funded by academic departments.  Please contact a relevant department for more information.
  • GAs funded by faculty grants.  Faculty periodically have research funding for their projects, please contact the program coordinator to see if there are any currently available.
