Financial Support

ResearchStipends are available for M.S. candidates that serve as teaching assistants.  Students serving as teaching assistants typically teach 2-3 100-level lab sections.   Currently, stipends for teaching assistants are $10,500 split over two semesters.  Please use the following links to find information on graduate tuition and fees, financial aid and other funding sources. The cost of graduate school is significantly less expensive for residents of North Carolina, such that we strongly encourage our out-of-state students to establish NC residency as soon as possible.
