For those that have been admitted/attend the University of Arizona, what are the typical # of funding offers? The coordinators have said they won't know how many assistantships they can offer until the know how much funding the department receives from the Graduate college at UofA (no timeline given on when they will hear). Dr. Alt mentioned that out of state students typically receive more funding help than in state students, due to the higher tuition rates, but not knowing anything about financial award is a little scary when trying to decide between programs. For those that attend, are funding offers common/uncommon? Also if any UofA students see this and would like to give your opinion on the program that would be greatly appreciated as well.
Hello, I I received an offer from a school with partial scholarship and a graduate assistantship. I asked them about the type of assistantship and the stipend, but they basically did not give me an answer. Just said that it can be either an RA or TA, 10h/w or 20h/w and the information of the amount that will be paid for assistantship is not available yet and only will be in May. I had to give them an answer in a short time, and since I did not hear back from the other schools yet I said yes. But I have no idea what I will get. This is in New York and a STEM field, but not a PhD and most of the things I have read through search is related to PhDs. I know I am lucky that I even got the offer since I am only doing masters. But I do not even know if the funding will cover tuition. And they are not answering my questions about this, I tried. They just say the information is not available. Was I not supposed to get a detailed offer letter? I prepared and sent my I20 form like there is no assistantship at all as they asked. But I do not know what to do as I am also waiting for other schools which will give me answers really late since I applied late.
I am an incoming Master's student really trying to obtain a GA position to waive out-of-state tuition. Any suggestions on how to be proactive/persuasive? My degree is research-based, which may help. I have contacted individual departments and followed up on applied positions (with some promise.) Anything else I am missing?
