Students admitted to the Master of Science in Chemistry program receive generous financial assistance from the Department of Chemistry. All admitted students receive a full-tuition scholarship for their graduate studies.
Teaching and Research Assistantships
Most graduate students are also awarded a teaching assistantship of approximately $8,000 per year. Qualified graduate students may apply for a research assistantship, such as the Chemistry Special Projects – Summer Research Award ($1,000-$3,000) and the Ron Najafi Summer Research Award ($1,000).
All applicants admitted to the program, both U.S. and international students, are considered for teaching assistantships when the admission applications are reviewed. There is no separate application for this financial assistance.
