Financial Assistance

Prospective students should review the Costs and Financial Aid section of the Grand Valley State University Undergraduate and Graduate catalog in full detail. A limited amount of money is available on a competitive basis for candidates who need assistance. Those who receive departmental assistantships will work with faculty at a variety of departmental tasks that provide support to the undergraduate programs in the Biology Department. Candidates who wish to instruct laboratory or lecture sections must apply separately for adjunct teaching position, which are not linked to their status as graduate students. Additional assistance in the form of research assistantships may be available through faculty research grants. Candidates are encouraged to seek external support for thesis, project, or internship work by submitting grant proposals to external funding agencies. Assistance from faculty is available to candidates seeking external funding.
