The Department of Criminology, Law and Society has several funding opportunities for graduate students, including Provost and Presidential Scholarships and Graduate Research and Teaching Assistantships (GRAs and GTAs). Most opportunities are for doctoral students enrolled on a full-time basis, but rules governing the awards vary. The department also supports graduate student travel to research conferences.
Funding decisions are made after admissions decisions. Please note that students who hold a GRA or a GTA position are expected to work 20 hours a week during the academic year and typically receive a stipend, tuition credits, and health insurance. The stipend amount and number of tuition credits varies depending on the particular position. Students who hold a GRA/GTA position at Mason must be full-time and may NOT engage in any other on- or off-campus employment during the academic year.
