Assistantships & Fellowships

We have a limited number of competitive departmental assistantships each fall semester. Opportunities may also exist with faculty that have research assistantships associated with grants.

Department assistantships currently include:

  • Student Health Insurance (Student Blue (RA or TA Plan) | Blue Cross, Blue Shield of NC)
  • US Citizens:  In-state tuition | Out-of-state tuition for US citizens (Out-of-state students are expected to establish NC residency by the end of their first academic year)
  • International Students: Out-of-state tuition (International students are expected to complete their graduate studies within the Graduate Student Support Plan timeline)
  • Student assistantship stipend

Requirements for Plant Pathology assistantship consideration:

In order for a student to be considered for one of our highly competitive assistantships, they must apply to our program through the Graduate School Application System. We cannot evaluate applicants prior to formal application through the Graduate School.
