A limited number of highly competitive graduate assistantships are available for MA students. The application deadline for graduate assistantships is March 1, and assistantships begin in the fall semester. Please note that graduate assistantships are not available for students admitted for the spring semester, but those students are eligible to apply for funding the following academic year.
Funding decisions are made separately from admissions decisions. You can expect to receive news about funding before the start of the fall semester.
Students who are funded receive a grant-in-aid that covers tuition costs and a stipend. The amount of the stipend is calculated by the Graduate School each year.
