Applicants wishing to be considered for financial assistance should ensure that their application materials for admission to the Graduate School and their department are completed early, generally by the end of December. The earlier the completion of the application process the more likely the student will be considered for a financial award by their department.
The Graduate School Assistantship competition begins at the end of February and only students who are fully admitted to the department and the Graduate School can be considered. Departmental assistantships are awarded beginning in March. Students who have not completed the application process will not be considered for financial support.
We hope this helps you with your funding search and we look forward to seeing you around campus!
