Financial Assistance for Graduate StudentsA limited number of graduate teaching fellowships (GTFs) are available. Fellows are exempt from tuition and receive a stipend and health insurance coverage during the academic year. GTFs usually register for 15 credits of course work a term and are assigned duties of 88 hours a term for each 0.20 full-time equivalency of their fellowship. Applications for fellowships should be received by January 15th.
The College Work-Study Program (under federal funding for students from low-income families) provides an alternative means of financial assistance. The Department of Geography has several positions under this program. For work-study certification and to apply for loans or grants, a separate request for forms should be made to:
