Assistantships and scholarships

All applicants to the UNT Master's Program in Speech-Language Pathology who submit each required component of their graduate application by the stated application deadline are automatically considered for competitive departmental assistantship awards.  An assistantship application is necessary to be hired for a competitive departmental assistantship award.  The department will invite individual applicants to apply on an as-needed basis. 

All applicants are strongly advised to work with their undergraduate advisor to identify sources of extramural scholarship, loan and grant support for which the applicant can apply, prior to the start of graduate school.  Many of these extramural funding mechanisms have application deadlines well in advance of the anticipated date of fall matriculation into the graduate program.
