Finances & Funding → McNair Graduate Assistantship Program
UF provides a limited number of one-year research assistantships for McNair Scholars who are entering a PhD program at this institution. It provides a yearly stipend ($12,000), in-state tuition, fees and health insurance for one year. Created to help students who have successfully completed the McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program as undergraduates, the Assistantship is open to McNair Scholars in good standing. Since this program is intended to increase enrollment in PhD programs, currently enrolled doctoral students are not eligible.
As part of the program, each student will be appointed and perform research assistant duties under faculty supervision. Interested students who meet the eligibility requirements are invited to apply. Please find the application form (in Microsoft Word format) at:
Please note: the application must include an official letter from the applicant’s undergraduate McNair Scholars Program director stating that the student was/is in good standing with the program.
Application Fee Waivers: McNair scholars who apply to UF are eligible for a graduate school application fee waiver. For more information, call Denise Bouton (Assistant Director of Admissions) at 352.392.1365 or email@example.com.
