Assistantships and Scholarships

The most common forms of financial aid in our department are Graduate Assistantships and Scholarships. Our Graduate Assistantships include a biweekly stipend during the academic year (9.5 months), full tuition remission (up to 10 credits - Fall and Spring, 4 credits - Winter) and access to State of Maryland health insurance options. Our Graduate Assistantships are either teaching or research-focused. Scholarships vary in amount and can be either one-year or multi-year awards. 

In addition, a small number of Fellowships are available to the most outstanding new applicants. 

All new applicants (e.g., students not already enrolled in one or our programs) are automatically considered for all available funding opportunities. For continuing students, applications for financial aid renewal are due each January.
