Applicants do not need to request consideration for a department program assistantship. With your application you will automatically be considered for a departmental teaching or research assistantship.

However, eligible applicants should apply for applicable fellowships, scholarships, and similar awards. See the Office of Graduate Studies fellowship/scholarships website ( Students who receive such awards receive the same support package as other students but have less work obligation.

The fellowship our students most often apply for and receive is the McKnight Doctoral Fellowship.

In addition to fellowships and scholarships for which applicants may apply, there are some that are by departmental nomination only (e.g., Graduate Student Success (GSS) Fellowship, Delores Auzenne Fellowship, McNair Doctoral Fellowship (part of the GSS Fellowships), and Presidential Graduate Fellowship).
