A range of funding opportunities are available for graduate students, and we make a strong effort to ensure adequate funding for each admitted student. Tuition, stipends, and fees for graduate students may be funded by research and teaching assistantships. Some departmental funds may also be available for conference travel, through the financial support of alumni and friends of the department. Please contact individual faculty to discuss funding options within the department.
The University of Iowa also provides internal funding opportunities through several different fellowship programs in the UI Graduate College. The Graduate College also provides services to help students apply for nationally-competitive external fellowships.
