History of Art and Architecture Graduate Funding


In addition to the funds available in the History of Art and Architecture Department, there are other UO sources of support for graduate student travel and research, including the Graduate School (small grants to reimburse travel and research expenses associated with thesis or dissertation work), the Center for the Study of Women and Society (CSWS) (grants for research on women and gender topics), the Oregon Humanities Center (graduate research fellowship), and the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics (dissertation fellowship). Please see their websites for details:

Graduate Employee Positions (GEs)

A number of Graduate Employment options are available to department graduate students (known as Graduate Research Fellowships, Graduate Teaching Fellowships, Teaching Assistantships or TAs at many other universities).

GEs assist faculty in the teaching of various undergraduate-level courses and receive tuition waivers and salaries governed by the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the University of Oregon and the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation.

GEs frequently teach discussion sections of large enrollment courses or are hired to assist in grading for high-enrollment courses. GEs assist faculty in course preparation, communications and grading, and may contribute lectures or other presentations to courses taught by faculty. Graduate Research Fellows conduct research or perform administrative duties.

Students in the department can also apply for positions in other UO units.

Scholarships in the College of Design are open for application by students who are enrolled majors within any of our disciplines. A select number of scholarships within certain disciplines are available for application by students who are applying for admission to a Design program. The more than 110 scholarships in our college have been made possible by donations from private parties, both individuals and business organizations. Many are provided by alumni who have been moved to give back, and who want to be part of helping to support students today as they earn their own degrees.

To be considered for scholarships, Design students use an online application system. Details about specific timelines for the current academic year will be posted soon. While each school may have select opportunities available during fall, winter, or spring terms—including for academically related travel or research—most scholarships are open for application during late fall/early winter and are awarded for distribution during fall term of the following academic year. This timing allows returning students to include any awarded scholarship in their calculations for financial aid or loan packages for the following year.
