Financial Support for Graduate Students

NJIT awards financial support to a select number of qualified full-time graduate students in the form of teaching, research, and graduate assistantships. These awards may cover full or partial tuition, a stipend or both. Competition for assistantships is strong and only successful applicants are notified.

Process

Submit the Application for Admission to Graduate Study to the Office of Graduate Admission. Admitted students will be considered for support by the academic department at the point of admission. The application must be submitted no later than January 15 for the fall semester and October 15 for the spring semester. A separate application form is not required.

Qualifications

The academic departments make all financial support award decisions and requirements vary from program to program. All students seeking financial aid are required to submit GRE or GMA scores to be considered.

International Students

Initial financial support (tuition remission and/or stipend) for master’s degree students is limited. However, international students with specialized skills may immediately qualify for hourly employment depending on the needs of our academic departments and administrative offices. Students may apply for on-campus hourly employment upon arrival. Merit-based support is generally reserved for those students pursuing a doctoral degree program.

Office of Graduate Studies

The Office of Graduate Studies provide assistance to graduate students in academic matters, approve thesis and dissertation formats, and offer information about the availability of university-level assistantships, fellowships, and scholarships.

They also keep a list of financial support available to graduate students on their website.
