Distinguished Graduate Student Assistantships
Distinguished Graduate Student Assistantships (DGSA) are offered by Texas Tech University to attract high-quality applicants into our doctoral programs. These newly established assistantships are designed to attract high-quality applicants into our doctoral programs for fall 2020. Awards will be $25,000/year plus tuition and fees for up 4 years, contingent upon satisfactory academic progress. Departments/programs receiving awards must commit to providing a 1:1 match ($12,500 Graduate School; $12,500 department/program per year for up to 4 years). Departments/programs may have DGSA recipients serve as TAs, RAs, GPTIs, etc., but only at a level of 0.25FTE (e.g., teaching load must be half that of a regular TA/GPTI). Departments/programs may offer stipends above $25,000, but they are 100% responsible for the overage.
Nomination process for open competition:
Students may not apply; they must be nominated. The nomination must clearly indicate how the nominee's qualifications rank among top applicants in the discipline (supported by appropriate metrics). Nominations for campus-wide competition should be submitted here.
Nomination system opens on November 15
Nomination deadline is January 15
Awards expected to be announced February 1
Offers may be accepted as soon as awarded but by no later than April 15
These awards provide supplements to department stipends in order to make competitive
offers to top applicants. Typically, the fellowships are $4,000/yr for four years
for Ph.D. students and $4,000/yr for two years for master's students. Students DO NOT apply for these fellowships.
Timetable: These are awarded on a rolling basis in conjunction with admission.
