Funding Opportunities

Financial Support

The CSE program endeavors to support all students who need financial support using a combination of external and internal funding. Since CSE is an interdisciplinary degree program, the funding opportunities are varied across disciplinary boundaries. The CSE admissions committee will endeavor to find funding opportunities for each incoming student appropriate to that student’s background.

Decisions on financial support and contract offers for the upcoming academic year are typically made in the spring semester.

Applicants for GRA (Graduate Research Assistant) positions should submit a current vita emphasizing their research qualifications.

Conferences and Travel Support

It is important for students to attend conferences in their area of research. Often travel support is available through various research grants, but students should not depend upon this. Limited travel funds are available from the Graduate Student Government (GSG).
