Sources of Support for Graduate Students
Fellowships: Yearly, through the Graduate College, the Anthropology Program allocates about 4 Nonresident Tuition Fellowships for new graduate students which allows nonresident (out of state) students to pay the same rate as resident students for the duration of their degree programs. This amounts to a saving of $2,898 per semester for a standard 9 hour load. Students who apply the by the 1 February deadline (fall admission) are automatically eligible for fellowship support.
GTA Positions: Each semester we fund 4 to 5 teaching assistant positions. These positions include complete tuition remission and a salary of $4,880 per semester to assisting faculty in the teaching of an undergraduate course. In addition, one to two GTA positions are available for our summer archaeological field school. Most graduate students receive at least 2 GTA awards during their program. All students who apply by the 1 February deadline (fall admission) are eligible for a GTA position.
Additional Support: Graduate Research Assistantships and paid internship positions are usually available to qualified students. Finally, our Champe and Weakly endowments support thesis research, travel to scholarly meetings, equipment, and direct aid.
Tuition: The cost of graduate courses for resident students is $190 per credit hour and $512 per credit hour for nonresident students (2005).
