The Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) Fellowship is awarded to U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents. The award is based on a studentís scholastic achievements, their financial need -- as determined from the studentís FAFSA Application (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) -- and by their willingness to participate in the GAANN Fellowship training requirements. The announcement and application forms for this fellowship will be sent to all Ph.D. students periodically throughout the year, as positions become available. The applications are reviewed by the GAANN faculty committee to select outstanding applicants who satisfy the eligibility criteria. As part of the requirements, the Fellows must satisfy the requirements of the program which includes: maintaining good academic standing, attending and completing a course on the Best Teaching and Learning Practices, shadowing a faculty memberís teaching activities for one course and one full academic semester to consist of attending the facultyís lectures, learning various teaching aspects such as developing homework assignments, grading and testing, teaching one didactic or laboratory course for one semester under the guidance of a faculty member while being mentored and provided with feedback including evaluation sessions from the faculty and students, and participation in professional development activities (e.g., paper writing, scientific presentation skills, bioengineering seminars, national conferences, and local symposia throughout the time of receiving the Fellowship). The level of fellowship offered is determined based on student need. Applicants will be evaluated by the committee and contacted individually.
Enhanced Graduate Teaching Assistantship and Doctoral Teaching Fellowship packages are available on a competitive basis to students beginning their first semester of study in UT Arlington doctoral or doctoral-bound programs. These packages provide tuition coverage and a competitive assistantship stipend for up to five years. For students in STEM programs, this support may consist of some combination of Enhanced Graduate Teaching Assistantships (EGTAs) with full tuition fellowships, graduate teaching assistantships with STEM tuition fellowships, or grant-funded research assistantships with STEM tuition fellowships. Requirements include a 50% graduate assistantship, full-time enrollment, and unconditional admission. Interested students should contact BE Advisors for more information.
