Financial Support and Funding

Financial Support & Funding,
Teaching and Research Assistantships
 

Attending graduate school is an important decision. Now that you have made that decision, you may need information concerning the funding sources that are available to graduate students. You should begin the process by determining what costs are involved and assessing the sources that are available to you. You can find a tuition breakdown by selecting the current schedule (in PDF) and scrolling to the Tuition and Fees section.

For a quick tuition estimate, visit the online Graduate Estimated Tuition and Fees Calculator.

Visit the financial aid website for contact information and to find out more about the financial aid opportunities for graduate students. International students can find financial assistance information here.  Another good resource for International Students is Financial Assistance for U.S. Study [MS Word, 90K], which provides information and links for possible sources of funding. Visit the USNEI site for even more information. Also, the Office of Graduate Studies maintains a site with links to sources of external funding, including graduate fellowships, stipends, grants, and other resources.

Check with your program’s advisor to see if that department offers teaching/research assistantships. Then check for more info about graduate teaching and research assistantships.

Don't forget to look at the professional organizations within your field, and to ask your professors about funding opportunities.

Please Note: Scholarship money and financial aid will not be reflected in your myUTTYLER account balance until funds are dispersed. For disbursement dates and other important information, please visit the Financial Aid Calendar. Deadlines for tuition payment fall close to the disbursement dates, so please check the tuition deadlines.

An important tip: be prepared to act quickly and to commit the time and energy necessary to apply for any funding
