MSES faculty are committed to helping graduate students seek out these awards. Be sure to ask!
MSES students may compete for APU graduate assistantships open to all applicants and continuing students. Typical awards are three-credit tuition waivers. Responsibilities vary and usually include teaching and research. Assistantships valued at more than $40,000 are granted by the Environmental Science Department every year.
Graduate research fellowships for Environmental Science-related studies are awarded in national competition by NASA and the National Science Foundation. APU is proud of its MSES students over the years who’ve received these full-ride fellowships.
While funding for thesis work varies by project, most MSES students win financial backing either through research grants or active collaboration with agencies and organizations.
