Cost & Assistance
OSU and the Stillwater community in general are especially affordable places for graduate
students. We offer competitive graduate assistantships for both MA and PhD students.
MA students are considered for two-year funding packages, and PhD students are considered
for five-year funding packages. Our graduate assistantships provide a tuition waiver,
health insurance and a monthly stipend that is competitive among Big 12 and other
peer institutions. We also offer annual scholarships, fellowships, grants and paper
prizes for both MA and PhD students, which provide significant extra financial support
for research and conference travel.
