Graduate Support for Prospective Students
When you apply for graduate study within the College of Arts and Sciences, you are automatically considered for associate instructorships and fellowships in the department or program where you will pursue your advanced degree.
Each program offers a different plan for supporting students through their graduate career. For information about graduate student support in a specific academic program, contact the director of graduate studies for that program. Most programs offer multi-year support packages that can include:
- Fellowships through the College of Arts and Sciences, the University Graduate School, and external foundations and government agencies.
- Associate instructor positions that provide experience teaching at the college-level.
- Research and other assistantships working with faculty on research and other scholarly endeavors.
The University Graduate School offers a comprehensive look at opportunities for funding your graduate education.
