Financial Assistantships, Fellowships, and Scholarships
All students who apply to the Criminal Justice Graduate Programs are automatically considered for Financial Assistantships. The College of Criminal Justice offers an array of scholarships, fellowships, teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and teaching instructorships to assist graduate students in pursuing their degrees. The number of awards are limited and are made on the basis of academic merit as evidenced by a student's score on the Graduate Record Examination, grade point average during both undergraduate and graduate level coursework, and the nature of courses completed at all academic levels. Letters of recommendation which address students' academic abilities are required. Teaching fellowships and research assistantships are available for doctoral students with records of superior scholarly achievements.
