University graduate fellowships (amounting to $10,000) are available on a competitive basis to a limited number of students. Departmental teaching assistantships, which help finance educational costs as valuable classroom experience is gained, are also available. Additional assistance is available from the university's Work Study program.
Graduate fellowships and teaching assistantships provide a stipend plus a waiver of matriculation and out-of-state tuition costs. Additionally, since FSU participates in the Academic Common Market among thirteen Southern states, residents of those states qualify for in-state fees.
Graduate students are also eligible for a range of research and travel fellowships, including the AdaBelle Winthrop-King Memorial Fund and the Nikola R. Pribic Fund.
