CFAS Department Financial aid assistance
When available, the Department of Community, Family, and Addiction Services offers research assistantships and teaching assistantships for doctoral students. There are a few assistantships for MS Students, but this is rare. These assistantships are usually offered on a 9-month stipend and the department will waive some of the university fees and non-resident fees for the student so that only in-state tuition and fees apply.
If they meet eligibility requirements, graduate students are required to apply for work-study support if they are assigned for a teaching or research assistantship.
The Department of Community, Family, and Addiction Services (CFAS), in conjunction with the College of Human Sciences, offers a variety of graduate scholarships of different amounts. In order for a student to receive a scholarship from CFAS, it is the College of Human Sciences requirement that the student completes a graduate scholarship application via the university’s scholarship websites and provides additional documentation (see application check list).
