The Department of Museum Studies and Baylor University offer a variety of funding options for graduate students.
The department offers two types of scholarships on a competitive basis. Tuition scholarships provide tuition remission for up to 9 hours per semester. Endowed scholarships are credited to the student’s Baylor account and may be used to pay for tuition, fees, books, and other expenses.
The department and its partner institutions offer several graduate assistantships in campus museums, libraries, and archives, and at the Waco Mammoth National Monument. Students work up to 20 hours per week. Stipends are set by the host institution and range from $12 to $22 per hour.
Other forms of financial aid, including loans and federal work study, are available through Student Financial Services.
