Graduate Student Funding
Graduate Student Funding

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)

Eligibility Requirements

  • 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.
