These competitive, merit-based scholarships are awarded for up to four years. No separate scholarship application is required. Students are considered for these awards based on an overall assessment of the admission application.
The average graduate tuition and fees per year is $21,466. Living expenses for graduate students are estimated at an additional $15,000 per year. The cost of tuition may vary among graduate and professional degree programs, so please visit the Onestop website for more details.
Assistantships—For graduate students, the most common financial assistance is through graduate assistantships (teaching or research under the direction of a faculty member), which are awarded by individual graduate programs. Qualified graduate students who receive an assistantship will have full or partial tuition waived and will receive a salary and health insurance. Yearly salaries for full-time graduate assistants range from approximately $14,000 to $25,500.
