Martin School Funding and Fellowships

Research, Teaching and Graduate Assistantships cover tuition, health insurance, and pay a stipend which varies depending on the department. Funding applications for fall 2024 are now open here.  Assistantships are awarded as part of the application process and the deadline to apply for fall funding is February 15.  Please be aware that Graduate School fellowships may have an earlier deadline.  Fellowships are available on a competitive basis.  Students can also check UK jobs for funding options in other departments.

All online MPA and MPFM prospective students that submit their applications for admission in SLATE by May 31 will be considered for a small scholarship towards their tuition. The scholarships will be announced the first week of June.
