Fellowships and Assistantships

Graduate Fellowships and Graduate Assistantships are available to graduate students on a competitive basis.

Graduate Assistantships

If you receive a graduate assistantship, you will work for your academic department as a research or teaching assistant, or as administrative support. You will receive a tuition waiver and a generous stipend. You also will gain valuable work experience in your field while you earn your degree.

Each department offers and administers its own graduate assistantships. Many offer full-time and part-time assistantship options. You can request an application and/or details directly from the department that houses your academic program.

Graduate Fellowships

The College of Graduate Studies awards a limited number of one-year graduate fellowships to newly admitted graduate students. If you are awarded a graduate fellowship, you will receive a tuition waiver and a generous stipend, and you will not be required to work for CMU or your academic department.

All applicants must submit official copies of current GRE or GMAT scores and three letters of recommendation with their applications prior to the deadline, which is the first Monday in February. For more information and/or an application, contact the College of Graduate Studies.
