The College for Health, Community and Policy (HCAP) is committed to supporting graduate students during their progression toward degree attainment. Ensuring our students have financial support, when available, is a critical component of their pathway to graduation, exposure to research activities, and professional development.
The Graduate Student Funding Policy was developed based on the following principles:
HCAP Ph.D. programs offer competitive funding packages to students throughout their tenure in the program. The typical funding package includes fiscal support to be employed as a Graduate Assistant, payment for tuition and fees for full-time enrollment, and coverage for basic health insurance. The total fiscal package is approx. $40,000 – please see here for specifics. Out-of-state and international students may qualify for in-state tuition as recipients of competitive scholarships. Additional fellowships and scholarship opportunities are available within and outside of UTSA.
