FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR YOUR GRADUATE STUDIES
This A&M website details all current tuition and fees here.
An important concern for any new graduate student is "how do I pay for my living and education expenses during graduate school?". Due to limited funding availability, admission to our graduate program does not guarantee that you will receive financial support. The various sources of funding listed below are awarded on a competitive basis to those students judged most likely to successfully complete our rigorous programs or who best match criteria linked to a specific fellowship or scholarship. Preference is given to doctoral students but qualified M.S. students are eligible. It is particularly critical for incoming Ph.D. students to assure you have funding in hand before arriving on the A&M campus to start graduate work, as there is no guarantee you will be able to acquire an assistantship or other source of funding after you begin this program.
There are two major types of support: fellowships and scholarships, which are granted directly to you with no specific work expectation and, secondly, assistantships that pay you a stipend for performing ~20 hours of work/week.
FELLOWSHIPS/SCHOLARSHIPS (Awarded to incoming students largely on academic merit; you will be contacted by our Graduate Program Office if your application is deemed competitive, and your potential advisor needs to write a nomination letter). These may or may not include health insurance coverage. These are awarded starting only in fall semesters; due to internal deadlines for nominations of qualified students, you should have your graduate application completed by January 31st.
