Interdisciplinary Materials Science Program

Financial Aid

We offer full support to our Ph.D. candidates through scholarships, fellowships, teaching assistantships and research assistantships.

Support includes:

    • TA/RA annual stipend award starting at $28,200
    • 100% tuition scholarship
    • 100% health insurance
    • 100% activity and recreation fees

Additional fellowships ranging from $1,000 - $10,000 per year are available for highly qualified applicants.

First year students in Materials Science are typically supported as teaching assistants for 9-12-months and transfer to research assistantships. TA teaching loads generally consist of teaching MSE 232, Strength of Materials in the fall semester and MSE 150, Materials Science I in the spring semester.

Prospective applicants are urged to apply for fellowships or grants from national, international, industrial or foundation sources.
