Financial Aid

The UGA Graduate School offers these financial aid options

  • Graduate Assistantships
    A limited number of assistantships are available to highly qualified applicants and are competitively awarded on the basis of merit. The stipend is $7,000 and includes a tuition waiver. Assistantships require that students work approximately 13 hours per week under the faculty member. Past assistantships with faculty members have included research opportunities and positions with the Coca-Cola Center (webmaster, newsletter editor).
  • Out-of-State Tuition Waivers
    Non-resident admitted students can seek to have a portion of their tuition waived for one academic year. These awards are based upon academic records and recommendation of the department. Candidates must have a 3.30 undergraduate GPA or a 3.50 graduate GPA and 550 GMAT or >300 GRE and plan to be enrolled for a minimum of 12 hours each semester to be eligible for nomination. Decisions are typically made in late March/early April.
