Funding Opportunities

Funding Opportunities

Most of our graduate students receive financial support in the form of graduate assistantships, which provide a stipend and tuition waiver. Assistantships are awarded annually on a competitive basis to qualified graduate students, and they require part-time teaching, research, or other academic duties defined by the College.

Assistantships require full-time enrollment (at least twelve graduate credit hours in fall and spring semesters and nine graduate credit hours in summer).

If you are interested in a Teaching Assistantship, please complete our online application.

University-wide assistantships are also available through the UGA Graduate School. This site also provides links to additional fellowship and scholarship opportunities.
