Funding

OSU’s M.A./M.S. program in Communication offers excellent opportunities for our students to fund their graduate study. We offer two main sources of financial support: 

  1. Select applicants will be offered a Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA), which provides a full tuition remission scholarship, a stipend of approximately $16,000 per year, and generous health insurance benefits. GTAs lead discussions, deliver lectures, grade papers, and conduct other teaching activities under the supervision of a course director. 
  2. Applicants are also considered for Oregon State Provost Fellowships, which cover all tuition expenses and provide approximately a $24,000 stipend during the first year. All Provost Fellows then receive a standard GTA contract in their second year. We also nominate strong applicants for university-wide Graduate Scholarships. 

In addition to tuition remission, all graduate students have the option to receive 89% coverage of health insurance costs for themselves and their dependents.
