Funding Your Graduate Education

The Masters program in Human Nutrition at Texas State University offers graduate assistantships and fellowships to qualified applicants. The assistantships and fellowships are limited in number and are preferentially awarded to thesis students on a semester-long basis because it is difficult for a thesis student to work off campus while conducting research. That said, there are always a few assistantships awarded to non-thesis students each semester.

  • Students applying for the January 15th priority deadline are eligible for graduate merit fellowships. The MS program nominates one or two students each spring semester for this award.
  • Students that met the priority deadline and have chosen the thesis option have priority for graduate assistantships. Applicants for this deadline learn if they are admitted in early February and if they have an assistantship in March.
  • Students applying for the March 1st admissions deadline are awarded graduate assistantships at the time of admission. This information will be included in your welcome letter from the Director of the MS in Human Nutrition.
  • Conditionally-admitted students are not eligible for assistantships or fellowships until the conditions of admission are met.
  • Additional information and funding sources can be found at the graduate college funding page.
