You DON’T need to apply separately for financial support. We automatically consider you for financial support, unless you indicate otherwise.
Students with quarter-time (10 hrs/week) or more support in the form of a GTA or RA automatically receive full tuition waiver. PhD students that qualify for a GTA position are typically hired for 20 hrs/week at a rate of $1,500 per month. MS students that qualify for a GTA position are typically hired for 20 hrs/week at a rate of $1,000 per month. PhD and MS students who qualify for a grader position but not a TA will typically be paid less than the stipends above. RAs are supported by an individual faculty member’s research grant; hence, that faculty member determines the compensation for his/her RA.
