Graduate Scholarships

As of Fall 2008, all entering first year MFA students are eligible for a $1000 Academic Achievement Scholarship that includes a waiver of the out-of-state or foreign tuition rate. This award is for first year MFA students with the possibility of renewal or other forms of aid in the following year(s).

All entering MFA students are also eligible to be considered for a Toulouse School of Graduate Studies Masters Fellowship that includes a cash stipend and a waiver of all tuition and some fees. These awards are highly competitive and the RTVF department must nominate the student.

Graduate students (MA and MFA) may also apply for the Don Staples Scholarship for work in the second or third years. Graduate students may also apply for funds to be used toward travel expenses for presentation of papers or films at conferences and festivals and for thesis research.

A limited number of paid graduate assistantships are awarded each year to new and continuing graduate students. Typically this involves students assisting in the teaching of large RTVF lecture classes. Opportunities are also available to assist in the management of campus radio station KNTU-FM or the department's cable channel ntTV, and in the research and creative activity of RTVF faculty members. Teaching and research assistantships carry a stipend, an out-of-state tuition waiver and basic medical benefits.
