Financial Support

Many students in the program are supported through departmental teaching assistantships (TA), continuing faculty grants and/or various scholarships and fellowships available through the CSU-Pueblo Foundation or other sources.

All students admitted to the program with regular status will be considered for teaching assistantships (TA), based upon their qualifications. Students must be admitted to the program by May 15 in order to be considered for teaching assistantships the following academic year. Students must apply to the GPNS Program Director by June 1 for the fall semester and by October 1 for the spring semester. The GPNS Program Director notifies students who are  awarded teaching assistantships. Students on a teaching assistantship must enroll for a minimum of 9 semester credits of graduate work. Teaching assistantships are awarded to students on a one semester renewable contract, with one probationary semester.  Support may be available for a maximum of four semesters. Renewal is subject to approval and satisfactory performance. The appropriate department chair will determine teaching assignments. 

Research assistantships (RA) are arranged through the respective faculty members.​​
