Financial Aid

Below are the types of financial assistance for full-time graduate students. They are all highly competitive. Students desiring financial assistance are encouraged to apply to our graduate program in computer science as early as possible.

(Part-time students are not eligible for financial assistance)


Jonsson School Distinguished Graduate Fellows

These are selected and supported by the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science. Please speak to an adviser for more information.


Teaching Assistants (TA’s)

TA’s are selected and supported by the Computer Science Department based on students’ academic merit and prior research experience. When students are considered for admission, they are also considered by the department’s selection committee for teaching assistantships. There is no need to apply separately. Most of our teaching assistantships are offered to students admitted to start in fall semesters. Students will be informed of any TA support no later than one week after the admission application deadline.

Please note that there are different deadline dates for domestic and international students.


Research Assistants (RA’s)

RA’s are supported by individual computer science faculty through faculty members’ research grants. Prospective students may contact faculty members directly to discuss their research interests and possible RA support.

Please view our list of faculty and our detailed faculty research summaries.


UT Dallas Cyber Security Scholarship Program (CyberCorp: Scholarship for Service (SFS) scholarship program)

UT Dallas invites applications for a graduate-level scholarship for service program, which provides students with a full scholarship for two years in exchange of service in federal government for a period equivalent to the length of the scholarship. The program enables government agencies to recruit from a highly qualified pool of students for internships and permanent positions.
