Financial Support


M.F.A. in Design

As a public institution, we are committed to supporting an economically diverse population. We aim to find the maximum financial assistance possible for master of fine arts (M.F.A.) in design graduate students and to provide it in an equitable manner.

Every accepted student in the M.F.A. in design program receives a partial scholarship from Mason Gross School of the Arts.

The Department of Art and Design also offers a part-time employment in the form of jobs that support the operation of the undergraduate and graduate design area.

Teaching Opportunities

We do not offer traditional teaching assistantships. M.F.A. in design students interested in gaining teaching experience can do so via a for-credit, semester-long teaching mentorship under faculty supervision. Upon completion of the mentorship, students become qualified for teaching assignments as part-time lecturers (PTL).

If and when appointed as a part-time lecturer, a graduate student is paid the full PTL rate.

NOTE: Graduate teaching positions or continuous teaching assignments are not guaranteed. Opportunities are contingent on faculty recommendation, experience, expertise, and position availability.

M.F.A. in Visual Arts

In line with the school's belief that graduate study in art should be accessible to students from a diverse range of backgrounds, all incoming graduate students in visual arts are awarded a fellowship the equivalent of full out-of-state tuition in the first year and full in-state tuition for the second year of the program (international students continue to receive out-of-state tuition in their second year). Students are responsible for covering all additional university fees including health insurance, campus fees, housing, and materials.

Additional financial support comes in the form of a host of department jobs that support its operations.
