Financial Aid

The Department of Sociology offers four types of awards to graduate students:

  • Teaching assistantships
  • Research assistantships
  • University of Iowa Fellowships
  • Graduate Merit Fellowships.

Resident tuition is charged to out-of-state students who receive awards. Students who receive one-half-time teaching or research assistantships work 20 hours each week for faculty members on either teaching or research assignments.

Financial assistance is awarded on the basis of merit to both U.S. and international students. To be considered for these awards, please complete and submit the Graduate Funding Application with your application.
