School of Landscape Architecture Resources
Our primary mechanism for providing financial assistance to our students is through Graduate Assistantships. Students have an opportunity each semester to apply for a Graduate Assistantship through a competitive application process open to all students in the School of Landscape Architecture. Graduate Assistantships are awarded on a semester basis and include a full tuition waiver, health insurance for the duration of the assistantship, and a total stipend of $2,500 for the semester. This stipend is distributed on a monthly basis over the course of the assistantship @ $416.66 per month and requires a 10-hour per week time commitment from the student as a graduate research assistant, graduate teaching assistant, or program assistant. Assignment to one of these positions is decided based on a student’s work ethic, attitude, skill set, and grade point average. In the 2015-16 academic year, greater than 50% of our students received this level of funding.
