Assistantships

Teaching, Research, and Graduate

Drexel offers highly qualified students financial assistance in the form of teaching, research, or graduate assistantships/fellowships. These assistantships/fellowships usually include a stipend that varies from program to program, full-tuition scholarship, and the cost of health insurance. Both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens are eligible and must be enrolled as full-time graduate students. Most Drexel graduate programs require the GRE for these positions. Applications must be submitted by January 1 to be considered.

Please note that not all programs offer assistantships; PhD programs and the College of Media Arts & Design master's programs offer assistantships. Additionally, most assistantships cannot be combined with any other graduate aid from the University, including Dean's Fellowships and Awards, the Drexel Grad Grant, and any other college-specific aid.

For more information about assistantships/fellowships offered, please contact your department.
