Cost & Assistance

Many graduate students are hired by professors to work on funded research projects. These students conduct research for faculty and are paid from the faculty’s research grants and contracts.  To receive a research assistantship the applicant must directly contact the MAE faculty in their area(s) of interest.  

Students with an excellent academic background and a high GRE score usually receive support in the form of a research and/or teaching assistantship(s). The number and type of assistantships, as well as the level of support, depend on the funding available at the time MAE receives the application.
