Assistantships & Financial Aid

We’re dedicated to helping graduate students achieve success during their time in the TELS department. That includes helping them find the funding they need to pursue their education and research full-time. Through the generous support of corporations and friends of the College, we are able to offer a limited number of scholarships to our incoming TELS students based on merit and/or need, as well as assistantship opportunities.

Recurring Scholarships

Scholarship amounts range from $500 to $5,000 and are only for students who are currently enrolled in or have been admitted to the College of Education by a select date each semester.  Notification about the availability of scholarships and the scholarship application process will also be posted for current/continuing graduate students in the College of Education.


Another valuable form of financial assistance is through a graduate assistantship. Through part-time employment within the TELS department, students are able to earn a stipend or tuition remission in exchange for assisting a faculty member, the department or the College of Education.
