Costs & Financial Aid

The cost of living in Gainesville is relatively low, while having much to offer in the way of attractive natural, cultural and recreational amenities — especially compared with larger, more congested urban areas. Check out the current average costs of attendance now on UF Office of Admission website by clicking on this link: Costs of Attendance
Financial support for graduate students in the Research and Evaluation Methodology (REM) program is available in the form of graduate research assistantships and teaching assistantships. All applicants who want to be considered for financial support should complete and submit the Application for Fellowship and Assistantship. After acceptance letters have been sent out, REM faculty will initiate the process of contacting applicants that may be suitable for each research or teaching assistantship opportunity.
African American and Hispanic students applying to the REM Ph.D. program are encouraged to apply for McKnight Doctoral Fellowships. This fellowship provides an annual stipend, tuition, health insurance and fee waiver for a maximum of five years.
Applicants to the REM program that have received admission notification are encouraged to apply to the Florida Board of Education (BOE) summer fellowship program, if they are US citizens. This is an outstanding opportunity for newly admitted graduate students to become acquainted with UF. Participants receive a stipend, a tuition waiver to enroll in four credit hours of Summer B Semester graduate coursework counting towards their degrees and non-credit preparatory courses in graduate level research and writing. More information about the BOE summer fellowship program as well as the application form can be found here.

Campus Visits

Applicants to the REM program are encouraged to schedule a campus visit, where they will have the opportunity to talk to REM faculty and students, and visit the REM facilities. All applicants interested in campus visitation should contact the REM program coordinator. Members of underrepresented minority groups should also apply to UF’s Campus Visitation Program.
If you have any other questions, please contact Ms. Angela Rowe by e-mail or by phone at 352-273-4333. Good luck! The University of Florida and the Research and Evaluation Methodology Program looks forward to receiving your application soon!
