Financial Aid for Ph.D. in Statistical Science and Biostatistics

Categories are  Financial-aid  tagged  Award /  Research /  Stipend /  Internship-award

Financial aid is available for outstanding applicants for the Ph.D. in Statistical Science and for the Ph.D. in Biostatistics. In both programs, the financial aid covers SMU tuition, fees, and a health insurance subsidy.

Ph.D. in Statistical Science

Entering students are eligible for Teaching Assistantships for which the stipend is $22,500 per academic year (September – May). TAs typically meet with undergraduates in small lab sessions, hold office hours, and/or assist in grading undergraduate course assignments. Since there is no summer coursework in the Statistical Science program, students often seek outside funding through summer internships. This past summer six Statistical Science Ph.D. students had internships at Frito Lay, Sabre, Capital One, Sanofi Pasture, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Elite Research.

Third and fourth-year students can be funded on Research Assistantships. These students (GRAs) are typically paid by a research grant and work closely with the faculty member who has the grant. The academic year support for GRAs is typically the same as for TAs ($22,500). During the last two years, GRA support has included internships at Baylor Medical Center and at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas (UTSW) and five students funded on faculty grants.

Ph.D. in Biostatistics

Ph.D. students in the Biostatistics Ph.D. program are funded on Fellowships for their first two years. These fellowship stipends are $28,000 per calendar year. There are no TA or GRA duties associated with these fellowships, and students are required to take 4 courses per semester for the first two years instead of the typical 3-course load taken by Ph.D. students in Statistical Science. Additionally, since the funding is for the calendar year, the students are involved in research projects either in UTSW labs, supporting SMU or UTSW statistics /biostatistics researchers, or other approved activities. During years 3-4, students making appropriate progress are funded on research grants, primarily by researchers at UTSW.

English Graduate Program Financial Aid

Categories are  Assistantship /  Financial-aid  tagged  Masters Degree /  Award /  Merit Based

The English Department has a limited number of opportunities for merit-based financial support. Because there are often more deserving students than we have money to support them, competition for these awards is keen. They offer two kinds of support for graduate students: Tuition scholarships and Graduate Teaching Assistantships.

Tuition scholarships will cover all or part of your tuition for an academic year. The Department generally has two such scholarships to distribute and most often divides them to provide partial support to a greater number of students.

Graduate Teaching Assistantships require you to take a minimum of nine (9) hours of coursework per semester and work approximately 20 hours a week, generally including teaching one or more studio sections of EH 101S: Intensive Writing Studio each semester, and working as a consultant in the Student Success Center. Often GTAs will also conduct research or provide additional support to other faculty members if enrollments do not require their presence in the classroom; the Director of Freshman Composition and the Director of English Graduate Studies (often with a committee) will make such assignments. Assistantships typically must be held for an entire academic year, although sometimes offers are made with a spring semester starting date. They cover tuition and pay a stipend each semester. Students may not hold other paid employment during the time of the appointment. Because the Department generally supports GTAs for the duration of their program (assuming both their teaching and their degree are going well), we often have only two or three openings for new GTAs each year, with another three or four GTAs continuing into a second year.

The Department meets each spring to make awards and reaches its decisions based on the students’ past academic performance.

Financial Aid for Biostatistics Students

Categories are  Fellowship /  Assistantship /  Financial-aid  tagged  Stipend /  Award

The Department of Biostatistics in the College of Public Health at the University of Iowa has multiple sources of financial aid available for graduate students. Most biostatistics graduate students receive some form of financial aid.

Financial aid comes in the form of assistantships and fellowships. Their assistantships and fellowships are for the nine months of the academic year. However, students are often offered support for the summer as well. Currently, all graduate research or teaching assistants appointed at 25% or more receive a 100% tuition scholarship each semester and a contribution toward health insurance.

Research assistantships: Research assistantships provide the majority of support available to the graduate students. Most students have research assistantships in which they are required to work either in the Biostatistics Consulting Center, Center for Public Health Statistics or on specific research programs. These research programs are usually funded by the federal government, particularly the National Institutes of Health, through individual departments in the: Carver College of Medicine; College of Dentistry; College of Nursing; and College of Public Health.

Teaching assistantships: A limited number of teaching assistantships are available in introductory service biostatistics courses.

Competitive fellowships: A limited number of competitive fellowships are available. The sources for these fellowships include the University of Iowa Graduate College Fellowship Program, private pharmaceutical firms, and the National Institutes of Health.

Students holding an assistantship (quarter-time or more) are classified as residents for fee purposes for the terms during which their appointments are held and any adjacent Summer Sessions in which they are enrolled. They have not assessed a technology fee.

Students holding a quarter-time or more teaching or research assistantship (covered by the COGS bargaining unit) are assured a minimum tuition scholarship of $9,425 per year. This does not include scholarships for Summer Session enrollment. Rates are based on a registration of 9 semester hours (or more) and are prorated as necessary.
