Financial Support

Almost all graduate students in physics are supported financially by an assistantship or a fellowship throughout their courses of study. The most common form of support for the incoming graduate students is a half-time teaching assistantship that entails 20 hours per week of work in assisting the faculty in teaching, typically including about 8 hours of contact teaching such as recitation classes or laboratories.
