Graduate Funding

Funding for graduate students in History is available through a variety of sources, including Graduate College Assistantships, Associateships, Fellowships, and Grants; endowed History department grants and awards; and University Financial Aid.

The predominant form of funding comes through graduate appointments awarded by the History department and administered through the Graduate College. In most cases these are Teaching appointments in the form of two-year Graduate Assistantships for MA applicants and four-year Doctoral Associateships for PhD applicants.  The Department of History typically is able to fund four to six new GAs and two to four new DAs each academic year.

New applicants to the History graduate program may request funding through the regular application process prior to the January 15 deadline.  Enrolled students without funding, or currently funded students requesting an extension of funding, should consult the History Graduate Handbook for appropriate procedures.  A limited number of summer appointments for Teaching or Research Assistant positions may be available, dependent upon on department resources and need.
