Financial Assistance

  

Ph.D. students in one of the traditional concentration are typically on an assistantship and receive $24,000 over the fall and spring semesters ($12,000 per semester). They also receive tuition waivers, which covers a large proportion of the tuition payment. They may also have an option to earn extra money by teaching a course in the summer if a course is available and if they are qualified to teach that course.

Students on an assistantship are normally assigned to assist faculty with research and teaching for their first two years (maximum of 20 hours per week). A significant part of their assignment may involve activities that prepare students for teaching skills, which can provide some quality control for their future teaching assignments. When students are assigned only teaching responsibilities, the normal assignment is a total of three courses over the Fall and Springs semesters. Student teaching or research assistance may be assigned to either the Boca Raton or the Davie campuses. Students can normally conduct their research assistance at either campus or wherever they use a computer to access FAU's electronic library and databases.

Assistantships are normally renewable for students making satisfactory progress on their work assignments and on their coursework. The maximum time period in which a student can receive an assistantship is normally four years from the date at which they entered the Ph.D. program. If students are not using their allocated hours to perform the research assistance, the teaching development, or the teaching tasks adequately, their assistantship may be discontinued immediately.

Other forms of financial assistance may be available; and all applicants are encouraged to contact local and national Scholarship, Grant, or Fellowship organizations. Local universities or municipal libraries should be able to assist in providing this information.
