Graduate Research Assistantships and Tuition Scholarships

The M.A. Program in International and Comparative Politics has a limited amount of financial assistance it can award to top students. Students requesting consideration for either graduate assistantships or the graduate tuition scholarship should submit their Application for Assistantship or Scholarship Support Form (PDF) directly to the ICP Program Office in the Department of Political Science. All applicants to the ICP program are eligible to apply for these awards. The deadline for consideration is March 1 of the application year (continuing student applicants are required to provide an approved Program of Study and research plan with their aid application). Applications for aid are kept on file for twelve months after their submission, and students will be reviewed as new funds become available. 

Students who receive Graduate Assistantships (GAs) receive a monthly stipend and a tuition waiver for Fall and Spring Semesters. They are required to register for six hours of graduate level (5000-level and above) courses each semester and to complete 20 hours of work for the program or department. This work may include general departmental services, research assistance for faculty members, or a combination of both.  Second year students may apply for assistantships, but in general, incoming students receive priority consideration. 

Recipients of Graduate Tuition Scholarship (GTS) must maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher, and avoid disciplinary difficulties, in order to maintain their scholarship. All continuing GTS recipients are required to submit an approved Program of Study and research plan by March 1 in order to be considered for partial renewal of their scholarship support in their second year.

GA and GTS awards are closely connected to enrollment and progress. Timely (indeed early) registration each term greatly facilitates the continuation of these forms of financial aid.
