Financial Aid

We would like to help you identify funding for your graduate studies!

Financial support for graduate students includes opportunities for Research Assistantships, Teaching Assistantships, and Fellowships:

Research Assistantships
RA positions are typically awarded by an individual professor to support funded research projects. If you are interested in an RA position, you should review faculty research areas at https://www.engr.uky.edu/research-faculty/departments/electrical-computer-engineering/research-0 and then contact our professors directly to inquire about opportunities.

Teaching Assistantships
TAs support faculty in carrying out our teaching mission. TA positions are evaluated and awarded by the department, and new applicants are considered automatically so no application is needed.  Current students interested in a TA position should email the Director of Graduate Studies at ecedgs@uky.edu 

Fellowships
Fellowships are competitive awards made directly to top students. All new applicants are considered automatically so no application is typically needed. A list of UK and College of Engineering fellowships can be found at University Fellowships and https://www.engr.uky.edu/students/graduate/financial-support/fellowship-opportunities, and a list of EE graduate fellowship is given below.
