Section 2: Merit Awards and Financial Aid

Tuition scholarships and stipends are awarded on a competitive basis to students in the Laney Graduate School. Official notification of merit awards comes from the Laney Graduate School, although some programs advise students of their award recommendations. Additionally, all offers of financial assistance are made in accordance with the resolution adopted by the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS). A copy of this resolution and a list of CGS member institutions which support the resolution are available at the CGS website.

The Laney Graduate School reviews continuing students each semester and evaluates their eligibility for merit awards. The Laney Graduate School sets the minimum eligibility for these awards. The Teaching Assistant Training and Teaching Opportunity (TATTO) program is required of all PhD students, whether or not they are receiving Laney Graduate School financial awards.
