Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance

Most American Studies graduate students are admitted with a multiyear funding package that allows them to work as teaching assistants.

Students enrolled in our combined Ph.D. program and our Ph.D. minor should apply for financial aid in their home department.

Funding and Fellowship Opportunities

The Graduate School offers both internal and external funding opportunities worthy of exploration.

The Gunderson Award, established in memory of Virginia LaFollette Gunderson, recognizes the best essay written by an American Studies graduate student with prize money in the amount of $1,000.
