Assistantships provide financial support for many graduate students. Teaching assistantships are funded by the department, and research assistantships are funded by individual faculty research grants. Only doctoral students and master's students who select the thesis option are eligible for teaching or research assistantships. Out-of-state and international students who are funded at least half time are eligible for in-state tuition rates.
To apply for an assistantship, contact MTSE.
Information about other financial assistance programs can be found on the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships page.
