Funding Opportunities

PhD students accepted to the program may be offered Teaching Assistant, Graduate Assistant, and/or Graduate Research Assistant positions. The potential benefits offered by the assistantship positions are outlined below. The assistantship positions may include reduced tuition and a stipend as compensation for 20 hours per week of work with a faculty member. The tuition benefit will cover fall and spring semesters. Summer semester is not covered under the tuition benefit. Additionally, the tuition benefit does not cover the public health tuition differential, and admitted students are required to cover the costs of the differential tuition each semester. Admitted students will also receive a stipend for fall and spring semesters.

Please note that students are only eligible for the tuition benefit and stipend if they are a full-time student taking at least 9 credit hours each fall and spring semester. Funding is renewable each semester for students in academic good standing, not on academic probation. To be in academic good standing the student must receive a B- or better in all of your PhD coursework.

Please note: Due to recent changes, the Public Health tuition differential cannot be waived.
