Financial Assistantship

Financial Assistantship

Kno.e.sis usually has around 50 funded students. Most PhD students are fully funded from the start, usually as a GRA. Fellowships are available for outstanding applicants. Most US MS and several undergrad students are funded too. International MS students almost never get funding at the start of their MS studies, but some are funded if they get involved in funded research. For International MS students, is best to take a course with a faculty you hope to be funded by, and demonstrate your readiness to engage in research to improve your chances for funding.

Students are advised to thoroughly review this web site including faculty web pages, carefully read instructions provided for prospective students by the faculty whose research areas match your interests, and then contact that faculty. Communicating with the current students and alumni may also be valuable. For International PhD applicants, completing the application by early February improves the chances of funding for a fall start. Admissions are granted year-round and some faculty may be open to a summer or spring start. For more information on joining the Knoesis Center, visit the Joining Us page.
