Funding Opportunities to Support Graduate Studies, Research, and Conference Travel
SLA doctoral students are typically funded in the course of their studies through a combination of graduate assistantships (teaching assistantships in various language departments and project assistants in the Language Institute and other departments) and fellowships.
Students apply for teaching assistantships through departments in which languages are taught. Students are strongly encouraged to talk about possibilities for TA positions with their advisor and with the SLA director and program coordinator. TA and PA positions of at least 1/3 time (33.4%, based on a 40-hour work week) come with the remission of tuition and health benefits. Find out more about assistantships by visiting this Graduate School webpage. Students may also apply for hourly positions available through many departments, programs, and other units on campus. Student hourly positions do not include tuition remission.
