From year to year, various funding opportunities to financially support and train ORS doctoral students may be available. When contacting a potential advisor, the applicant should discuss the availability of funding and/or a future plan for maintaining funding or obtaining new funding. Additional information on funding opportunities may also be obtained by contacting the ORS PHD program director, Dr. Matt Malcolm.
Each year, research assistantships may be offered by the department to PhD students accepted into the program. These opportunities are offered on a competitive basis and the number available change depending on the academic year.
