Financial Aid

Three students walk on campus.

After the first year, the faculty advisor is responsible for sponsoring their graduate student’s financial aid, which comes in one of three forms:


Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA)

Provides a monthly stipend, tuition waiver, and health insurance. Responsibilities include assisting a faculty member with course-related tasks such as grading, assisting students, and leading labs.


Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA)

Provides a monthly stipend, tuition waiver, and health insurance. Responsibilities include assisting a faculty member with research tasks.


Fellowships

The department and university provide a number of fellowships. All admitted students are considered for these automatically.
