Financial Support

Each Spring, the students and their faculty advisors complete a Student Annual Report (SAR) as a way to reflect on progess made over the ending academic year. These reports are then reviewed by the faculty to determine the merit and need-based awarding of Teaching Assistantships, Department Research Positions, and other monetary support for the following academic year.
