The Department of English annually awards a limited number of assistantships to students accepted into the Texts, Technologies, and Literature graduate program. These confer tuition remission, a stipend of approximately $11,000-$13,000, and health insurance benefits. Both new applicants and continuing students in the Texts, Technologies, and Literature program are eligible to apply. Completed applications must be received by May 1st in order to receive full consideration for graduate assistantship funding for the upcoming academic year. Students wanting to be considered for an assistantship must send a separate letter indicating interest and qualifications to the Graduate Program Director, Lucille McCarthy. Be sure to also visit the Graduate School and Graduate Student Association websites for information about other graduate assistantship opportunities for incoming and continuing students. Information about other financial assistance is available from the Office of Financial Aid. Be sure to check online for application deadlines and instructions.
