Graduate Incentive Awards
All students admitted to the Educational Studies PhD program are eligible to apply for Graduate Incentive Awards (GIA), which provides funding to support the cost of coursework. GIA support is available to full-time and part-time doctoral students.
The School of Education also has a wide range of graduate assistantship positions available that provide a financial stipend to support student tuition costs. Graduate assistant positions include opportunities to be involved in teaching, research, and/or general program management. As such, graduate assistantships provide valuable learning opportunities in addition to financial support.
