Funding and Financial Aid

A limited number of graduate assistantships are available. Interested applicants should consult information from the Graduate School on employment and assistantships. You should discuss your goals with the Director of Graduate Studies in the Dept. of Anthropology.

To be considered for assistantships, please submit your application by January 15 (new in 2020 – we will consider those applying in January).

Information on tuition and fees can be found here (link to graduate school table). Please note that while assistantships often come with in-state tuition waivers, fees and out-of-state tuition are not covered.

In addition, please complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA). This form is required for most financial aid and tuition support from UNC Charlotte. We recommend that all applicants complete the FAFSA, even if you do not expect to receive financial aid. This is a prerequisite for almost all fellowships and awards to graduate students, and it is a good idea to have one on file. The FAFSA form should be updated and resubmitted every year, usually by a March 1 deadline. Click here for the form. Click here to access the form.
