Graduate Tuition Fellowships & Assistantships

Graduate Tuition Fellowships

Competitive Graduate Tuition Fellowships (GTF) are available for full-time PhD in Higher Education Leadership and Policy Studies students employed in teaching and research Assistant positions with the College of Education. This fellowship pays all tuition and the majority of fees incurred by Doctoral students. GTF students have substantial opportunities to work with faculty on research projects as well as, in some cases, teaching.

To be eligible to receive GTF, a graduate student must maintain a 3.0 grade point average and be employed as a graduate assistant. Graduate students holding this fellowship must agree not to be otherwise employed (on or off campus) for more than 20 hours a week. Violation of this provision will result in withdrawal of the funding during the semester in which the violation occurs.
