Assistantships, Grants and Scholarships

Paying for Graduate School

You can finance your education through internal and external sources of funding available to graduate students.  Some internal options provided by the Graduate School include scholarships, assistantships, and grants aimed at helping students defray costs throughout their graduate careers. 

  • Scholarships are funds or payments awarded on the basis of academic or other achievements.
  • 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.
  • A grant is awarded by an institution or organization, often to pursue a particular research project or to attain specific professional goals.
  • The Versailles Program is an opportunity for graduate students to teach and conduct independent research at a university in the southwest suburbs of Paris.
