Fees and Financial Aid

Graduate student stipends are available in the form of teaching and research assistantships. Financial aid awards based on merit provide tuition scholarships. The 12-month stipend for the 2013-2014 year is $25,200 in addition to full tuition remission and Health Insurance subsidy.  Graduate students in recent years have also won outside support for their studies, including Newport Research Awards, Ford Foundation Minority Awards, grants and fellowships from SPIE, Fulbright pre-doctoral fellowships, American Association of University Women pre-doctoral fellowship, and fellowships from Zonta International. Others have arranged part-time or full-time study while working in industrial positions where the employer provided tuition support or partial stipend support. Advanced graduate students have also been supported through faculty research grants from the NSF.
