financial assistance

There are three types of financial assistance for full-time graduate students, and all three are highly competitive. (Part-time students are not eligible for financial assistance.) As you’ll see below, there is no formal application process for this assistance. Students desiring financial assistance are encouraged to apply to our graduate program in Computer Engineering as early as possible.

1. Jonsson School Distinguished Graduate Fellows are selected and supported by the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering & Computer Science. Please speak to an adviser for more information.

2. Teaching assistants (TAs) are selected and supported by the Electrical Engineering Department based on students’ academic merit and prior research experience. After students are admitted, they may be considered by the department's selection committee for teaching assistantships.

  • Applications are accepted between Feb 1 and Feb 15 of each academic year for consideration of TA awards in the upcoming academic year. Online TA Applications begin every February 1st at 8:00 am and are due February 15th at 5:00 pm.
  • Current TAs are required to apply for renewal of their assistantship.
  • Online TA Application is active and available only during the application period.

3. Research assistants (RAs) are supported by individual computer engineering faculty through faculty members’ research grants. Prospective students may contact faculty members directly to discuss their research interests and possible RA support. Please view our faculty research summaries.
