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.
Scope & Principles
The Graduate Student Funding Policy was developed based on the following principles:
- Encourage equity across graduate students within HCaP
- Compensate students with a fair working wage
- Offer access to health care (when available)
- Offset tuition cost (when available)
- Provide resources for living expenses (when available)
- All students hired as employees must be in ‘good standing’ and enrolled in at least six (6) credit hours during long semesters and one (1) credit hour during the summer.
- Students receiving $1K competitive scholarships must be enrolled in nine (9) credit hours in long semesters.
