Financial Support

Most of our graduate students are supported by research assistantships or teaching assistantships that provide hands-on experience in addition to financial aid. A significant number of competitive scholarships and fellowships are also available to qualified students, and travel support often is provided for national meetings to allow students to network with others in the field.

Currently, nearly all full-time graduate students at the University of Delaware College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment receive full financial aid via fellowships, teaching assistantships or research assistantships. Most part-time graduate students receive partial aid through scholarships and other sources.

A variety of scholarship/fellowship opportunities are available to qualified students.

Students with regular, full-time status and high academic standing may qualify. Fellowships usually provide full tuition and a stipend. Awards are competitive and are based on academic achievement and professional commitment and potential. Awards are granted for one year.
