Newly admitted students will normally be supported as graduate teaching assistants (TAs) during their first two semesters in residence. After that, students will be supported as either TAs or graduate student researchers (GSRs) depending on availability of TAships and the research advisor’s funding situation.
Highly competitive applicants will be considered for the Chancellor's Fellowship, which provides a $4,000 grant on top of the TA or GSR salary for up to four years.
A limited number of application fee waivers are available based on financial need, including for international applicants. Request by contacting the admissions chair.
