The Office of the Provost offers a number of awards and grants for graduate students and the department would like to bring your attention to two opportunities that could greatly benefit our students:


Doctoral Research Scholars (opening March 1, 2022): These competitive assistantships are a new funding opportunity for full-time or part-time doctoral students, who have completed a minimum of 48 credits of coursework. They provide support for graduate students to advance their research to progress in 998 or 999 requirements towards completion of their degree.


High Impact Grants (opening March 2, 2022): These competitive grants are a new funding opportunity for master’s and doctoral students. They provide tuition support for graduate students’ courses that significantly enhance training and education and/or satisfy credit-bearing requirements towards completion of the graduate degree.


If you have any questions regarding either opportunity or would like more information, please contact the Office of the Provost at
