Funding Opportunities

Each year, the Department of Geography and Geosciences funds two graduate teaching assistantships (GTAs) for incoming students.  Tuition, health insurance and a $1000/month stipend are provided.   GTAs must be enrolled full-time.  Responsibilities during Year 1 include assisting faculty with teaching and research responsibilities.  During Year 2, the GTA teaches an online course in GEOS 200 or GEOG 200.

The Department also offers scholarships to students in good standing.  These scholarships generally cover one-third of tuition costs, but are dependent on departmental resources.

Students interested in being considered for a GTA or scholarship must indicate this on the enrollment form.

Research and teaching assistantships may also be available via funded research projects.  Individual faculty members can provide information about current research projects.
