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.
Assistantships for incoming graduate students can be either Graduate Assistantships (responsibilities supportive of the general mission of the program such as lab techs, Visual Resources Center assistants, Gallery assistants, etc.) or Teaching Assistantships (direct participation in the teaching mission of the program, normally in the form of assisting faculty in teaching courses). Assistantships in the department qualify non-resident students for in-state tuition for the regular fall and spring terms.
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.

The School of Art faculty regularly nominates a few outstanding applicants to our graduate programs for the AT&T Chancellor's Fellowships, which range from $3,00-$5,000 per year. We have recently averaged between two and three recipients of this award per year. Various graduate scholarships are also available through the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Click to view.
