Financial Aid for M.A. Students

Teaching Assistantships
Teaching Assistantships with stipends of $12,887 are available on a competitive basis for three years at the M.A. level, and stipends of $14,608 are available at the Ph.D. level for five years. Prospective students interested in teaching assistantship support should indicate that on the application cover sheet. Two weeks before the beginning of their first semester, all students who receive teaching appointments will also participate in a seminar to help them prepare for their courses, covering topics such as reading assignments, writing assignments, paper grading and classroom strategy.

Other Opportunities for Financial Support
In addition to teaching assistantships, fellowships, and special stipends, there are other sources of financial support in the English Department associated with specialized professional training. Two Research Assistantships are available for working with the Director of First-Year composition, who administers a large university-wide Freshman Composition Program. This program also offers a summer workshop with a stipend to prepare Teaching Assistants for their first year of instruction. The Sutton Endowed Chair in English provides a Research Assistantship in Literary Theory and Cultural Studies. Two Research Assistantships are available for working with the editor of Genre, the quarterly journal published by the Department. World Literature Today, the prominent University of Oklahoma journal which administers the biannual Neustadt International Prize for Literature, offers two renewable one-year Assistantships for teaching and research related to the journal's mission.
