Graduate students are supported by fellowships or employed as departmental teaching and research assistants. Applicants are automatically considered for any departmental and university funding we have to offer. However, the applicant's file must be complete (with all supporting documents) and be received by the January 15th deadline. This funding (Recruitment Fellowships, Teaching Assistantships, etc.) are allocated at the discretion of the Graduate Admissions Committee. A decision will be communicated to the applicant in the form of a letter which will be included as part of the acceptance package.
Research assistantships are also available. As professors are responsible for choosing their research assistants, it is in your best interest to distribute your curriculum vitae to their mailboxes shortly after you arrive. If you are interested in applying for a research assistantship, please ensure that we have an updated curriculum vitae which includes your research experience and education.
The department also communicates directly with students via electronic mail about new fellowship and scholarship opportunities.
