Assistantships, Fellowships, and Other Funding Available

The below funding is dependent on funding available for each academic year.

We have to this point been able to provide some funding for all students in the program. This situation could change.

Assistantships

Graduate assistantships at IUP are selectively awarded to highly qualified graduate students who have been admitted to degree programs. Assistantships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence rather than financial need.

Twenty-hour full assistantships (awarded only to full-time graduate students):

  • Require approximately twenty hours of student work per week during the Fall and Spring semesters (maximum of six hundred hours over the period of the assistantship)
  • Provide a specific stipend amount
  • Include full tuition remission for degree-required credits during the academic year
  • Enable student to be eligible for up to nine degree-required credits of tuition waiver in the summer following the assistantship

Ten-hour full assistantships (awarded only to full-time graduate students):

  • Require approximately ten hours of student work per week during the Fall and Spring semesters (maximum of three hundred hours over the period of the assistantship)
  • Provide a specific stipend amount
  • Include a 50 percent tuition remission for degree-required credits during the academic year
  • Enable student to be eligible for a maximum tuition waiver up to six degree-required credits in the following summer

Stipends for assistantships may change from year to year. Potential applicants should check with the School of Graduate Studies and Research for current stipend levels.

The deadline for applying for a Fall assistantship is March 15 of the same calendar year. Apply online or download a PDF version of the assistantship instructions and an application.

International Students: Assistantships cannot be used to indicate financial support on IUP’s Foreign Student Financial Statement Form.

Fellowships

Our department has provided fellowship money that we typically divide between students based on qualifications.

Internal (IUP) Funding for Graduate Student Research: 2013–2014 Academic Year

IUP offers a variety of funding opportunities for graduate student research.
Details, applications, and forms

Please direct all questions on these funding opportunities to Jean Serio by e-mail at jserio@iup.edu or by phone at 724-357-2439.

Graduate Student Research Grant

This fund was created to encourage and support graduate students as they undertake research and creative projects that will contribute new insights in their chosen academic field. The maximum amount of the grant that students may receive in support of their research project, creative project, thesis, or dissertation research is $1,000 per year. Applications for support must reflect excellent academic scholarship and must carefully follow the proposal guidelines for funding consideration. The student must be enrolled at IUP during the term of the award. Two grant competitions are held annually; proposals are due the first Monday in November and the first Monday in February. See Graduate Student Research Grant Guidelines.

Funding for Graduate Student Travel to Present Papers

This fund supports graduate students currently enrolled in a doctoral or master’s program who are presenting papers at professional meetings. Doctoral and master’s students may apply for up to $750 in funding for the fiscal year. See the application and instructions for doctoral students or the application and instructions for master’s students. Once approved, the student must pay expenses up front and is reimbursed through standard university procedures. Please read and follow the guidelines outlined in the Instructions for Reimbursement for Travel to ensure proper reimbursement. The guidelines describe how students must submit a completed Travel Voucher and other materials to their departments. To see how to complete the voucher, see Travel Voucher Sample.

Graduate Student Professional Development Fund

Graduate students can apply for up to $300 to support their participation in scholarly and creative activities that add to professional development in a significant way. The graduate student must provide a clear description of the proposed activity and explain how it adds to his or her scholarly development. As part of the application, a faculty member must describe the importance of the activity as it relates to the student’s scholarly goals and educational progress. Examples of eligible activities include serving as a moderator, discussant, or session chair at a disciplinary conference; presenting research methodology for feedback at a roundtable discussion at a conference; or leadership activities related to professional or disciplinary associations. Simply attending a conference, while a valuable learning experience, is not eligible for support. Support to individual students will not exceed $300 per academic year. See Graduate Student Professional Development Fund application and instructions.

Graduate Student Outstanding Research Award

The School of Graduate Studies and Research recognizes graduate students who have completed what their academic departments believe to be outstanding research projects during the academic year. Three to five $100 awards are made, on a competitive basis, to graduate students each spring, following the review of a faculty nomination letter and a completed proposal. Awards are presented at the annual universitywide Research Awards Luncheon. View Outstanding Research Award submission instructions.
