Graduate Funding

Successful applicants are awarded either Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) or Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs). In 2014-2015, GTAs are supported with a stipend starting at $22,000 for PhD students ($19,700 for Masters students), a tuition waiver, and health insurance. GRAs are assigned by individual faculty members who have available grant support for a particular line of research. Many of our students hold external fellowships (1 in 12 have received an NSF GRF, for example), and we strongly encourage all applicants to apply for such fellowships, including:
