[b]$60.00 [b]Generally all of our PhD students are offered support for at least the first year, and can expect to have support through their degree if they continue to make adequate progress. Support comes in the form of fellowships, teaching assistantships (TA), or research assistantships (RA). [b]Assistanships are 20-hour/week positions that pay a stipend, tuition and fees, and health insurance. Typically a PhD student will have a fellowship the first year and then be offered a research assistantship in subsequent years by their advisor. [b]Students should also look into applying for extramural fellowships (see our fellowship pages by Bennet Yee), which gives them more flexibility in choosing an advisor, etc. [b]Masters students may also be offered a teaching assistantship upon admission to the program. Research assistantships may also be forthcoming once faculty members become more familiar with a student's work. [b]Many of our Masters students choose to work in local industry (or already do). San Diego is one of the fastest growing high technology areas in the country, and has been named the "Wireless Capital of the World," and the "#1 place to do business in America," by Forbes magazine. [b]25. University of Massachusetts?Amherst 3.6 [b]Q. What are my chances of getting an assistantship (financial aid)? [b]A. It is our policy to provide financial aid (assistantships) to those admitted students requesting it. Stipends come in the form of Research/Teaching Assistantships (12 month or 9 month), For example, stipends for the Academic Year 2001-2002 were $18,200 for 12 month [b]appointments and $13,300 for 9 month appointments. [b]It is also worth mentioning that the cost of living is cheaper in the Pioneer Valley than many other places which makes it easier to live on the level of support we offer.
