Available Funding

The School of Communication funds nearly every student we admit to our M.A. and Ph.D. programs with either a Graduate Assistantship (a teaching assistant or research assistant) or some form of Graduate School Fellowship (University Fellowship or Enrichment Fellowship). 

Our Graduate Assistantship funding packages are very competitive.

  • M.A. students are funded for two years ($1,750/month stipend plus tuition waiver for a nine month assistantship)
  • Ph.D. students for four to five years depending on prior academic experience ($2,150/month stipend plus tuition waiver for a nine month assistantship)

In return for the Graduate Assistantship package, students are expected to work an average of 20 hours per week as a teaching or research assistant.  The tuition waiver covers both Ohio resident as well as non-resident tuition.
