Graduate / Research Assistantships
Students who have successfully completed at least one year of study are eligible to apply for a research assistantship. A research assistantship is typically given to students who are recommended by the faculty of first-year courses. The assistantship is for one year but is renewable. Both new and repeated applicants for assistantship must submit applications each year. One graduate assistantship is available to a first-year student.
All students are selected for admission to the Ph.D. program based on academic preparation, leadership experience, and alignment with Eastern’s mission. Candidates with superior academic qualifications will be considered for tuition grants ranging from 10 to 50%. A limited number of grants will be awarded to selected applicants in each academic year and are renewable for up to three years. Tuition grants may be combined with other scholarships, such as the early admission merit grants described on the Admissions Criteria page.
The David and Ellie Greenhalgh Scholarship
The David and Ellie Greenhalgh Scholarship of $1,500 will be annually granted to at least one student, with financial needs and an excellent academic and leadership promise. Based on faculty recommendations, the Board of Fellows and Dr. David Greenhalgh will select the awardees.
