UAB Graduate Teaching Assistantships

Chemistry students in the PhD program in good academic standing, making satisfactory progress toward degree requirements are supported by a graduate teaching assistantship. As a graduate teaching assistant, you will be given a teaching assignment of no more than 20 hours/week. The appointment is intended to support your immersion in your graduate program. Accordingly, your remaining effort should be devoted to carrying out your dissertation research and other milestones and requirements outlined in the Chemistry Graduate Program Handbook. These assistantships include a competitive monthly stipend in addition to a tuition scholarship covering full tuition and fees.

UAB Graduate Fellowships

Students applying for the PhD program by January 1 each year will be considered for the UAB Graduate Fellow in the Arts and Sciences award. This prestigious fellowship offers an annual stipend of $32,000 per year, plus tuition and fees, and honors applicants to PhD programs in the UAB College of Arts and Sciences who show exceptional promise in research and scholarship. Awardees will be notified by February 20 each year.
