Paying for Graduate Study
Continuing your education in any field requires an investment. In CASNR, we help you minimize your financial investment through fellowships and assistantships.
Over 1,700 assistantship appointments are made by departments during an academic year. Most assistantships include tuition remission during the semester of appointment and may include tuition remission for the summer. Assistantships for summer may also be available.
The assistantships are competitively awarded and typically require 13 to 20 hours of service per week. Graduate assistants are required to register during the fall and spring semesters if employed during that time, but not in the summer.Assistantships
Graduate students newly admitted to UNL degree programs are eligible for several fellowships. All of these fellowships are awarded by or through the academic departments, with no separate fellowship application forms for new students to complete. Because departments make nominations for some of the fellowships by mid-February, and many departments begin reviewing applications by January 15, it is important that your Application for Admission be completed as early as possible.
Contact your admitting department for further information regarding fellowships that might be available to you.Fellowships
