Graduate Fellowships + Aid

Fellowships and Other Funding Sources

Departmental financial aid is generally available only for doctoral students. Applicants to the CIS doctoral program are considered for available funding; it is not necessary to submit extra material to be considered for funding.

There are no RA positions available in the department; only research fellow positions for doctoral students. Teaching assistant duties are generally met by doctoral students participating in a Teaching Practicum.
