Also, the Graduate School usually awards five Chancellors Fellowships to our department in the amount of $5,000 per year. Application deadlines are January 1 for fall awards and May 1 for spring awards.
Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTA)
The majority of our graduate students are funded through part time Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTA). The beginning stipend is currently $15,700. Many students are provided support for one or two summer sessions. Out-of-state tuition is waived and excellent medical benefits are provided. Generally, GTA's are required to teach 2 lower level, undergraduate courses once they have accrued 18 graduate credit hours. If graduate students do not have classroom teaching responsibilities, they are given grading or tutoring duties or leadership of course homework sessions. All M.S. and Ph.D. applicants are considered for GTA positions.
