Graduate Assistantships & Fellowships

Increasing private support for graduate students is critical to Louisiana Tech’s goals of providing unparalleled education and tackling grand research challenges. Donor-funded graduate awards, which cover tuition and provide living stipends, help Tech compete nationwide for top master’s and PhD students, who make immeasurable contributions to our teaching, research, and corporate partnerships. One notable bonus of recruiting graduate students from universities nationwide is that they bring new ideas, innovations, and technology skills that strengthen all our endeavors.
