Financial Aid for graduate students is available in the form of research assistantships, teaching assistantships, fellowships, grants, loans and work-study.
Teaching Assistantships: The Department of Computer Science awards approximately 30 teaching assistantships each year. All students are automatically considered. These assistantships are allocated based on the academic performance of the student and the Department's needs for course coverage. Students do not have to apply for these positions.
Research Assistantships: A number of research assistantships are available each year. Individual faculty members with research support select recipients of these research assistantships.
SPIR Projects: The Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence is a program within the Watson School in which students are granted projects to work with local companies to fund and enhance their skills. When a SPIR project opportunity arises, the students will be contacted by the Department to submit a resume. The students' talents and expertise will be matched with the needs of current participating companies.
Scholarships: The Watson School offers a number of different academic scholarships.
Grants, Loans, Work-Study: You may request information on these types of financial aid from the Student Financial Aid and Employment Office here at Binghamton University.
