We make every attempt to support students through graduate assistantships, fellowships, and/or scholarships.
Graduate Assistantships are available in teaching, supervision, and/or research. The number of assistantships available varies each year and new admits must be qualified for the open position responsibilities (primarily teaching and supervising in our teacher preparation programs) to be considered for this support. Half-time graduate assistantships typically cover 9 credits of tuition per semester plus a stipend, and GAs are eligible for UF health insurance.
In addition, the most competitive applicants will be encouraged to apply for the UF Graduate School Fellowship Program which carries four years of full funding in the form of a tuition waiver and a nationally competitive stipend. The purpose of the fellowships is to prepare the next generation of researchers in the area of Teachers, Schools, and Society. Graduate Fellows typically receive research assignments with some teaching throughout their doctoral programs. The University expects fellowship recipients to demonstrate high standards of academic achievement and participation in university life. The fellowships are very competitive and the number of fellowships awarded varies from year to year.
To be considered for the fellowship and assistantships, you should complete the assistantship application form found in the admission packet.
The College of Education offers scholarships to qualified students. Please consult the scholarships website for additional information.
We encourage all students to consult the UF Financial Aid Office to see what funding opportunities/sources are available. That information can be found at: http://www.sfa.ufl.edu/
