Graduate Assistantships and Fellowships

The Saint Louis University School of Science and Engineering offers a variety of funding opportunities to admitted, degree-seeking graduate students in good standing. For fellowships and other funding opportunities at the University level, please visit Saint Louis University's Graduate Scholarships, Fellowships and Assistantships page.

Graduate Assistantships

The School of Science and Engineering offers a variety of assistantships, ranging from programs that provide only graduate tuition to a full assistantship that includes a monthly stipend, health insurance, and graduate tuition.

Current and newly admitted School of Science and Engineering graduate students may be eligible for an assistantship if they are classified (degree-seeking) students in one of our M.S. or Ph.D. programs in engineering or aviation science. Students conducting research receive priority.

The application includes a short form, your resume/CV, a short statement of justification, and a letter of support and commitment from a graduate faculty advisor. A multidisciplinary faculty panel will review your assistantship application and all other documentation. If you receive an assistantship, you will be contacted via email later in the spring.
