The privately endowed Armstrong Fund in the School of Arts and Humanities at UT Dallas permits the graduate program to award a few modest fellowships each academic year. In contrast to Teaching Assistantships, which involve part-time work for the school and are based solely on students' academic record, these awards are based on financial need as well as academic merit. Thus, applicants must provide the fellowship committee information on their incomes as well as estimated expenses.
While the awards are direct payments to recipients, the school requires Armstrong fellows to study full time and expects that they use the grants toward university tuition. Indeed, most of the grants would qualify recipients for in-state tuition, should they not otherwise qualify for it. Although a student may hold a teaching assistantship and Armstrong grant simultaneously, students holding a Graduate Student Scholarship are not eligible for the Armstrong grant. If a student is awarded the Armstrong grant but withdraws from classes, the amount of the award must be paid back to the university.
Return the Armstrong Fellowship application form for academic year 2012-2013 to the Arts and Humanities Office (JO 4.510).
