From funding tuition to paying for other costs of attendance, graduate students at The University of Texas at Austin often benefit from the support of the university.

Student Employment

Teaching and graduate research assistantships provide valuable experience and financial support for graduate students. But employment in a non-academic role at the university or in the community is also an option for many graduate students.

Graduate Fellowships

The Graduate School facilitates a number of university-affiliated fellowships, in addition to coordinating select extramural fellowships.

Financial Aid

For students who need additional financial support beyond fellowships and student employment, financial aid is available. Graduate students may apply for federal, state and institutional financial aid programs.

Awards and Other Funds

In addition to funding designed to support students in paying the university’s cost of attendance, the Graduate School offers a number of awards to support prospective and current students, faculty and staff.
