Graduate Scholarships and Fellowships

Apply for a graduate scholarship or fellowship

SPEA offers scholarships and fellowships to graduate students based on academic achievement, civic engagement, and financial need. Graduate assistantships are also available to full-time students.

Graduate assistantships

SPEA hires dozens of graduate students to work with our faculty members in a research capacity every academic year. Graduate Assistants work 20 hours per week and receive tuition remission, some fees, student health insurance, and a stipend of around $9,000 that is paid out monthly over the academic year. Student Research Assistants work up to 20 hours per week and receive a competitive hourly rate roughly equivalent to $10,000 per academic year. Both positions are competitively awarded.
