Funding for Graduate Education

All students admitted to the UW's ESM department are fully funded, either via their advisor's grant or departmental funding.  To receive departmental funding, students must serve as a teaching assistant to a departmental class.  You will be notified in your offer letter how you will be funded.  It is wise to discuss with your potential advisor how you will be funded upon your admittance to the department.  In very rare cases, we may accept students with their own funding or that are self-funded.


Apply for a departmental GA:

There are a varying number of departmental GAs available each year.  Your advisor will know if you are receiving a GA before you are admitted. The application deadline for this fellowship is January 31.

  1. Apply for a department admission.
  2. Application materials (GRE scores, transcripts, personal statement, and letters) are all that are needed.
  3. Successful applicants will be notified with their formal offers.

Apply for a grant-funded GA:

Faculty who acquire grants with funding for a graduate student are able to recruit students on their own timeline.  Students who are funded through a grant GA must submit the same application materials as departmental GAs, but there is no application deadline. 

  1. Apply for a department admission.
  2. Application materials (GRE scores, transcripts, personal statement, and letters) are all that are needed.
  3. Successful applicants will be notified with their formal offers.
