Financial assistance

A number of graduate assistantships and tuition scholarships are available to students and are awarded on a competitive basis. Decisions about assistantships are based on the same materials that are submitted for admission. An assistantship consists of a stipend in return for work with faculty members for up to twenty hours per week. A graduate recruitment scholarship (GRS) includes a tuition scholarship and entails up to 6 hours of work with faculty per week. For more information, write to Dr. Debra Henderson, Graduate Director, or visit Ohio University's financial assistance website.

Other funding may be available from other sources on campus.  Sociology graduate students have occasionally received assistantships from the Voinovich School of Learership and Public Affairs, the Center for Law, Justice & Culture, and the Women’s Center.
