Financial Assistance

Urban studies students come from diverse backgrounds, reflecting a wide range of financial circumstances. Need-based grants, merit based scholarships and fellowships, and student loans are available to defray the costs of a graduate education in Urban Studies. University administered financial aid is also available. Urban studies faculty may also hire students as research assistants during each semester. We also circulate teaching assistantship opportunities as they are received from other departments.
