Financial Aid

Financial Aid for Graduate Students

Financial assistance in the form of research and teaching assistantships and excellence fellowships is available for our Ph.D. students.  Since the number of assistantships varies, students requesting financial aid are encouraged to submit their applications by January 15th.  Most doctoral students receive support throughout their studies.  Although we cannot guarantee full financial aid, all of our current continuing doctoral program students receive support.

Teaching Assistants

The main responsibilities of TAs in the program are to instruct laboratories associated with undergraduate courses such as Exercise Physiology or Exercise Testing and Prescription, to assist with instruction for large undergraduate lectures, or to teach select undergraduate courses (particularly for more senior TAs).  Twenty hours per week are required.
