Graduate Student Funding Opportunities

Each Fall, several matching assistantships for students, Grinter Fellowships of $2,000 - $4,000, and Graduate School Funding Awards of $30,000 (over four years) are awarded to outstanding new students in Soil and Water Sciences. Additional or alternative funding may be available contingent upon faculty members' individual research programs. Application to the graduate program automatically qualifies you for funding consideration, provided you have included the Application for Assistantship with your application documents. Deliberations for competitive funding awards and assistantships will begin January 2nd for students applying to start in the fall semester.
