Financial Assistance For Graduate Studies in Entomology

Financial Aid

The availability of graduate teaching and research assistantships varies from year to year. Faculty often have assistantship funds from grants for specific projects. There are a few department-funded research and teaching assistantships. Consideration for assistantships is given only after the prospective student's application has been approved by the Graduate Student Recruitment Committee.

Assistantships provide a salary and benefits. Benefits include in-state tuition and health insurance. Health insurance is provided as long as the student remains on an assistantship. However, students are required to pay fees each semester which are currently over $700. Providing that satisfactory progress is being made toward the degree, assistantships are guaranteed for:

  • 2½ years (5 semesters) for the M.S. degree
  • 3½ years (7 semesters) for the Ph.D. with M.S.
  • 4½ years (9 semesters) for the Ph.D. without M.S.
