Costs and Funding

Our Priority is Student Success

We understand that a graduate education is a significant investment of time, energy and money. Fortunately, there are ways to lessen the financial burden. Each year, graduate students from the University of Arkansas receive NASA, NSF, Fulbright, and other prestigious national awards in addition to travel grants, research training grants and national research grants administered by individual faculty.

It is never too early to start looking for funding resources — even if you are not yet enrolled in a graduate program. While the office of graduate fellowships and student support can assist students with questions about awards, your current or prospective academic department is a valuable resource to guide you through funding opportunities relevant to your discipline, bringing you that much closer to achieving your graduate degree.

At the University of Arkansas, several types of financial assistance are available to qualified graduate students to help meet the expected cost of attendance, including graduate assistantshipsdoctoral fellowships, travel grants, loans, and work-study opportunities.
