Financial Assistance for Graduate Students

Through the UGA Graduate School

The UGA Graduate School provides financial assistance to most graduate students at the university. Information about assistantships, work study programs, tuition waivers, and merit-based awards are all available through the UGA Graduate School website.

Through the UGA Center for Teaching and Learning Awards

The University of Georgia recognizes the significant contribution graduate students make to the instructional mission of the university with two awards for excellence in teaching.

UGA Office of Financial Aid

All students should utilize resources at the UGA Office of Financial Aid as they consider how best to reconcile tuition and other living expenses. In addition, some departments within the College of Education offer additional assistantships, scholarships, grants, and other awards to students within one of their programs.
