Financial Support

Admission to the graduate program does not imply the granting of financial aid.  A limited number of Fellowships are available to first-year students of outstanding ability.  Students should pursue acceptance to an active research program for subsequent years' funding. In general, in the second and subsequent years, students will be supported with Graduate Student Researcher (GSR) positions, although support in the form of Teaching Assistantships or fellowships may also be available from the advisor's department.
