This award is paid from research contracts and grants obtained by individual ECE faculty. Faculties have full autonomy in appointing their Research Assistants. Faculties are generally reluctant to fund Research Assistants from their grants unless the student has been in their classes, and has passed the doctoral qualifying examination. However, exceptions may be made for outstanding applicants, and applicants are encouraged to contact faculty in their area(s) of interest. The assistantship covers a monthly stipend (commensurate with the student qualification) and waiver of tuition and fees.
