Master’s students may qualify for TA or RA positions in TCP. There are also hourly student assistant (SA) positions, though these are often offered in the second semester of a student’s first year in the program after meeting certain criteria and qualifications.
If you are seeking additional fellowship funding to support your education, please know that the admissions committee automatically considers admitted entering students for graduate fellowships; there is no separate fellowship application for entering applicants. Fellowship recipients are selected during the admissions process, and in most circumstances, recipients will be notified before their $200 enrollment deposit is due.
You may consider searching the Graduate School’s webpage on Graduate Student Funding.
If you are an international student looking for additional funding, some students are successful in finding sponsors from their home country to fund their education here. Alternatively, students apply for loans in their home country. CU Boulder’s Financial Aid office does not have financial aid available for international students at this time.
Federal financial aid for domestic graduate students are typically in the form of loans. In most instances, you will be eligible for enough aid to cover 100 percent of your college costs, including tuition, fees, room and board, books and supplies, rent, utilities, medical, transportation, and normal personal expenses. Please note that car expenses (car payment, insurance, repairs), credit card payments, and rent/utilities over the budgeted amount are not included. It is very important to keep your expenses within the budget.
The CU Office of Financial Aid has full information on federal programs, eligibility, and what you need to do apply.
