Graduate Students Awarded Veteran Assistantships
Three military veterans will begin earning their master’s degrees at UNC Charlotte aided by substantial awards provided by the University’s Graduate School. The funding, called assistantships, will cover tuition and health insurance, plus a $12,000 annual stipend. Total value of each assistantship is roughly $36,000. The awards require the students to aid professors in their departments with research and teaching.
Associate Provost and Graduate School Dean Tom Reynolds initiated the program that will select three military veterans each year to receive the two-year awards to pursue master’s or doctoral degrees. This year’s selected veterans represent the U.S. Army and Air Force; click here to learn more about the recipients.
