Tuition Waivers

Students that are supported by a Department as a TA/TF or who receive a scholarship of $1000 or more are eligible to receive a waiver of out-of-state tuition.

Graduate School Fellowships

Nominations are submitted to the Toulouse School of Graduate Studies by the Department once the applicant has been accepted.

Departmental Scholarships/Assistantships

Generally, students are fully supported by the departments that accept them, through scholarships and assistantships. This support gives students the opportunity to receive a waiver of out of state tuition. Information regarding assistantship positions can be obtained from the Ph.D. Coordinators. Awards are given to students on a competitive basis.

Our program is a full-time in-resident research based program, and our students are active members of the department through research and teaching responsibilities.

Fellowships and Scholarships Avaliable

The College of Business strongly encourages doctoral applicants to apply for all available fellowships/scholarships. The following are fellowships/scholarships available through the University or the College:

Graduate School Doctoral Fellowships
  • The Robert B. Toulouse School of Graduate Studies provides funds for competitive Graduate School Doctoral Fellowships for students who will begin their study for a doctoral degree beginning in Summer or Fall of each year. These Doctoral Fellowships are in the amount of $20,000 for the first year of a doctoral student's full-time graduate study. Departments receiving fellowships for their students must then support them for at least two succeeding full academic years, providing the student maintains satisfactory progress toward the doctoral degree sought. Departmental nominations for the scholarships should be submitted through the Department Chair of the Major Area. Area of Study: Open; Contact: Toulouse School of Graduate Studies, (940) 565-2383.
Toulouse School of Graduate Studies - Summer Scholarships
  • The Robert B. Toulouse School of Graduate Studies awards a number of summer scholarships to assist University of North Texas doctoral students in enrolling in graduate courses during the summer. The scholarships will be in the amount of $1,000. They are awarded competitively, and would qualify non-resident recipients to pay in-state tuition. Both continuing and new graduate students are eligible for the scholarships. Departmental nominations for the scholarships should be submitted through the Department Chair of the major area.
