The University awards a limited number of fellowships (which cover tuition and provide stipendiary support) and scholarships (which entail remission of half or all of tuition) to qualified entering graduate students. These awards are highly competitive, and are awarded by nomination of the Department.
The History Department also offers a number of teaching assistantships (also awarded on a highly competitive basis), most of them to assist faculty by leading discussion sections of our gateway (200-level) undergraduate courses. All these assistantships come with cash stipends. CUA is an equal opportunity educational institution.
There is no separate application for merit-based financial aid (fellowships, scholarships and teaching assistantships): all eligible applicants whose files are complete by February 1 will automatically be considered.
