By checking the appropriate box on the graduate school application, you will automatically be considered for research and teaching assistantships and fellowships. EEB generally supports students in both the M.S. and Ph.D. programs in one of these ways (mostly on teaching assistantships). The support package is highly competitive, including a nine-month stipend (ranging from $19,098-$22,342 in 2008), a tuition waiver, and excellent health and dental coverage.
Some students may be eligible for federal financial aid.
Prospective students are encouraged to apply for outside fellowship support.
