Financial support

Contrary to the situation with Ph.D. programs there is limited financial support for master's programs. Nonetheless, we are committed to developing as many financial resources for our students as possible. Decisions concerning fellowships and assistantships will normally be at least partly based on merit. Other factors will also be considered. Some funds are usually available from the unit, School of Science, IUPUI and external grants. These will vary from year to year. The "Online Admissions Application" contains a box that should be checked if you would like to be considered for financial aid.
