Departmental funding

Some students are admitted with full funding their first year. These are primarily Graduate Assistantships (which are usually referred to as "Teaching Assistantships") and University Fellowships.  For these students, certain funding criteria apply. See rules for funding that is controlled and allocated by the Department. 

Graduate students may also receive departmental awards. The Economics department offers the Robert Eisner Graduate Fellowship and the Susan Schmidt Bies Prizes. Learn about these awards.
