Our department offers strong financial support to doctoral students on a competitive basis. Our PhD students hold teaching assistantships that allow them to work closely with faculty members for the benefit of familiarizing themselves with cutting-edge approaches to in-class and online teaching. The twelve-months-per-year financial support plan includes tuition waivers and contributes to our students' consistent progress toward degree completion. A selection of our master's students receive nine-month assistantships that also cover tuition.
Additional fellowships and grants are available through the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs, the University Graduate School, and other institutions at FIU.
History graduate students in the Latin American concentration have been successful in competing for fellowships offered through the Latin American & Caribbean Center from various sources, including the Mellon Foundation, the Foreign Language and Areas Studies program of the Department of Education, and the Organization of American States, among others.
Further sources of financial support include a limited number of graduate fellowships and financial aid. Waivers of out-of state tuition charges may also be available. Inquiries regarding these sources of support should be addressed to the Graduate Program Director.
