Available Financial Aid for Graduate Students

Graduate School Financial Aid Graduate assistantships, both research and teaching, are available for domestic and international students.

You are encouraged to apply by February 1 for priority consideration.

International applicants who apply for graduate assistantships must also submit a minimum of a 600 on the paper-based TOEFL or a 250 on the computer-based TOEFL and a 45 on the TSE (Test of Spoken English).

Scholarship assistance is considered for both undergraduate and graduate students and is based on academic merit and demonstrated financial need.

International applicants for a master's or doctoral degree are considered for a scholarship on a rolling basis and are encouraged to apply considerably in advance of the admission application deadlines. Students who are awarded a Florida Tech Scholarship and a Graduate Assistantship (apply directly to the academic department) may choose between either award. Students may not receive both.

All international students are encouraged to secure scholarships from external sources to help fund their education in the United States. Additionally, students may apply for on-campus employment and are permitted to work up to 20 hours per week.

Awards of graduate assistantships are determined by each major department.

Please complete the online Graduate Assistantship Application  and forward any additional materials to the Office of Graduate Admissions, 150 W. University Blvd., Melbourne, Florida 32901.

In addition to graduate assistantships, student loans are available. Please visit the Office of Financial Aid Web site for additional information, application and requirements.
