Prospective Graduate Student Scholarships

International students are considered for this award.
A Graduate Assistantship provides a full scholarship up to the number of credit hours required for a graduate student's academic program. Additionally, it provides a paid, part-time job on campus for 10 or more hours per week. Graduate Assistantships are awarded to outstanding applicants by the academic department at the time of admission.
