Graduate Student Funding

Recipients of graduate appointments receive stipends for a one-half time appointment and are exempted from university fees and tuition, except for a small charge for medical service and for use of the Recreational Gymnasium. Graduate teaching and research assistantships, scholarships and fellowships are available. Most EAPS graduate students are funded through Fellowships, Research Assistantships, or Teaching Assistantships. There is no separate form needed to apply for any of these assistantships. You are automatically considered for funding when you apply.
