Financial Support

Student Financial Support

Financial support is available from a variety of sources including fellowships, training grants, teaching assistantships, research assistantships, scholarships, and loans. For additional details regarding the financial assistance, please contact Laurie Ward in the HST Academic Office, E25-518.
HST students should be actively engaged in managing their financial support. Some students enter with funding secured, while others seek funding through various opportunities throughout their graduate careers. Knowing types, sources, and mechanisms of financial support will ease the graduate experience and allow students to maintain their focus on research and academics.
