There is no specific application form for divisional financial aid awards, as all admitted students are automatically considered. First consideration for aid is given to students who submit application materials by December 1.

Teaching and Research Assistantships

Aid awards are typically in the form of graduate teaching or research assistantships, which carry a salary, full tuition benefit, and the option to participate in a health insurance plan for which the university covers a portion of the premium. About 10–15 graduate assistantships are awarded to new students each year.

Research assistants may work with individual faculty on grant-sponsored projects or in one of several division-affiliated centers involved in the design and analysis of health studies. Teaching assistants are assigned to a particular course and provide tutoring, grading, and help in the computer lab.
