Assistantships, Scholarships and Grants

There are internal and external sources of funding available to graduate students.  Some internal options provided by the Graduate School include assistantships, scholarships, and grants aimed at helping students during their time in graduate school. 

  • Assistantships are a form of financial aid through which graduate students are paid for the work they perform. They are often related to students' studies or areas of specialization. Typically assistantships fall into one of the following categories: graduate, research, teaching.
  • Scholarships are funds or payments awarded on the basis of academic or other achievements.
  • Grants are awarded by an institution or organization, often to pursue a particular research project or to attain specific professional goals.
  • The Versailles Fellowship is an opportunity for graduate students to teach and conduct independent research at a university outside of Paris.
