Financial Aid


There are several sources of financial support for graduate students:

Research and Teaching Assistantships

Financial aid is available to students in the form of teaching and research assistantships. These allow students to provide support for faculty either in teaching a class or in conducting research, while receiving a stipend and tuition waiver in return.


Fellowships are sometimes available to PhD students. Fellowships usually provide both a stipend and tuition waivers.

Travel Awards

There are several sources of financial support for travel for students presenting a technical paper at a computer science conference. These include the Computer Science Department itself, as well as programs sponsored by the Graduate School. In addition, students can volunteer for full support to attend a Usenix or IETF conference.
