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.
