In return, they include a tuition scholarship and stipend. Full-time study is required.
These positions do not require service to the school. They usually include a tuition scholarship and a stipend. Full-time study is required.
Other offices and programs of the University have graduate assistantships available. These may be in the Residential Life Complex, the Career Development Center, the Physical Education Department, the Vice Provost’s Office or other offices on campus. All provide tuition scholarships and stipends, and all require service to the office or the program awarding the assistantship.
NEW (2013-14): There is a now loan money available for DNP students only from the Skelly Foundation. You may e-mail Jennie Orton for further information.
Graduate nursing loans and a special graduate student College Work Study program are available to graduate nursing students. Awards from these sources are dependent on demonstrated need as noted on the financial aid form filed with the Financial Aid Office on campus. More information on these forms of financial support can be obtained directly from the Financial Aid Office (607) 777-2428.
Students can apply by forwarding a letter of request to Assistant Dean Cynthia Altmansberger in the Decker School of Nursing or to the appropriate campus office. Decisions are based upon the information provided by the applicant, their academic merit, choice of program of study and the availability of funds. It should be noted that all financial support described above, with the exception of some loans requires full-time study and maintenance of good academic standing and the expectation is that the student not accept supplemental employment or additional service obligations beyond the graduate student support award.
