Funding Resources for Graduate Studies
Graduate students in the Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences are normally funded for their first years of graduate study by a mix of University Fellowships, Graduate (normally teaching) Assistantships and, in the Social and Laboratory Sciences, Research Assistantships (funded by research grants). The details of aid vary from program to program and are spelled out in the initial offer letter.
The Department Administrator or Graduate Program Administrator for your department or program is your first contact for questions regarding funding.
The Graduate School Financial Aid web site has more complete information.
