The School of Communication and Information (SC&I) offers a
limited number of scholarships and fellowships to graduate students each
year. The school is continually seeking funding from outside agencies
and donors, and awards vary each year. Continuing students are notified
early each spring about awards available for the upcoming year, and
students are able to submit an application for any scholarship for which
they are eligible. For details about SC&I scholarships offered in
the most recent year, see http://comminfo.rutgers.edu/current-students/scholarships-and-awards.html.
graduate students at the university are supported by fellowships funded
by sources outside the university. Students should consult standard
reference material for sources of nonuniversity fellowships. Students
should also contact clubs, fraternal, religious, and national
professional organizations and local interest groups for possible aid
through stipends and tuition credits. National and local library associations are a regular source of small awards for SC&I students. A student who receives any of
these awards is required to notify the Office of Financial Aid.
SC&I and other academic departments at Rutgers hire graduate
students as adjunct faculty members to teach undergraduate students. SC&I
and administrative offices around the university sometimes also hire students
for staff support functions. Students who are interested should contact the
appropriate departments to check for availability, or check these websites:
