Financial Aid & Scholarships

Burleson Quadrangle

There are Graduate Assistantships (GAs) available to support Ph.D. students. GAs often assist professors with research, teach courses in Baylor's teacher education program, or otherwise work in one of Baylor's Professional Development Schools. Stipends are competitive with what is offered by other leading universities. In addition to stipends, GAs receive various amounts of tuition scholarship (also known as tuition remission). Baylor typically pays for at least half of each semester's tuition for Ph.D. students.

In addition to Baylor-funded GA positions, numerous faculty have received grants that support GAs. We encourage potential Ph.D. students to contact faculty within their field of interest to see if grant-funded GA positions will be open in that area.

GA positions are competitive and require an additional review process beyond what is required for admission to the Graduate School.

GA and scholarship opportunities make the cost of Baylor's Ph.D. in Curriculum & Teaching program very competitive with other programs at both public and private universities throughout the nation.

For more information on the application and review process for all GA positions, please contact
