Office of Financial Aid
Graduate students attending The University of Texas at Dallas can apply for financial aid through the Financial Aid Office. Students interested in applying for financial aid should visit the Office of Graduate Studies Financial Aid page and the UT Dallas Financial Aid website.
Financial support of doctoral students is awarded through teaching or research assistantship stipends and tuition scholarships. Applicants can apply for funding when completing the online application.
Funding is competitive and awarded to the most qualified applicants. Applicants are eligible to receive assistantships through the Graduate Studies Committee or through the grants of individual faculty members. Both types of assistantships carry an obligation to provide up to 20 hours of work per week. This does not include work done for course credit or independent study and research.
Teaching assistantships are available on a competitive basis. Teaching assistants (TAs) receive a monthly stipend for assisting specific faculty with teaching and laboratory activities. They are required to work 20 hours per week. In addition, a graduate student scholarship that covers tuition and fees is also available and typically awarded to students who receive teaching assistant positions. Out-of-state and international students who receive a teaching assistantship are eligible for in-state tuition.
