Financial Assistance

The department attempts to provide financial support for all qualified doctoral students and for outstanding M.S. applicants. Research assistants who participate in grants and research contracts are selected individually by the principal investigators.

Some teaching assistantships are available. These carry stipends of $12,600 for Ph.D. students and require approximately half-time duties performed during the academic year. Available fellowships include Huel D. Perkins Doctoral Fellowship ($14,333 per year, plus tuition) and Board of Regents’ Graduate Fellowships ($17,500 per year). Also available are the Economic Development Assistantships ($25,000 per year for up to four years).
