Tuition and fees are waived for those students who receive full financial support in the form of teaching assistantships, which is the only form of financial support that is offered through the Department. Teaching assistantship positions are competitive and currently eight of our graduate students receive financial support in the form of teaching assistantships. Teaching assistant positions are for a total of two years (four semesters) and include a full tuition waiver and a $16,500/year stipend. Receiving financial aid usually means teaching two to three introductory lab classes in the afternoons to non-science majors. Students awarded with a teaching assistantship are provided a computer.
Please contact individual our faculty members to inquire about the availability of research assistantships in their funded projects
Other financial aid opportunities exist through the University and interested students should contact the TCU Financial Aid office for more information.
