Graduate Student Scholarships and Financial Aid
The TTU School of Art offers competitive scholarships and assistantships for Ph.D., MFA, MAE and MA Art History students. These may be re-applied for each year. Scholarships generally start at $1,000 per year. Competitive scholarships, from School of Art or the Graduate School, of at least $1,000 for the academic year qualify students for in-state tuition, if applicable.
Teaching Assistantships are available to incoming graduate students. In this position graduate students provide direct participation in the teaching mission of the program, normally in the form of assisting faculty in teaching courses. Assistantship awards are for the nine-month school year (fall semester and spring semester), at either quarter-time or half-time (half-time is the maximum allowable). Assistants are scheduled for 10 hours of work per week for quarter-time appointments and 20 hours per week for half-time. Half-time (.50) assistantships in the department qualify non-resident students for in-state tuition for the regular fall and spring terms.
The School of Art faculty annually nominates a few outstanding applicants for fellowships awarded through the J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts. For details about those fellowships, click here.
