Graduate Financial Assistance

The Department of Economics has limited merit-based financial aid available for graduate students each year. Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) and tuition credits are available for both international and domestic students. We award financial support mainly on basis of merit, with some concern for need, the willingness to assist us in some of our undergraduate courses and the level of competition from other applicants.
