Dear ${Contacts.First Name},

SIUE’s tuition and fees are among the lowest in our region. Paired with a low cost of living in the Edwardsville area, SIUE is an affordable choice for a quality education.

SIUE offers several options to help graduate students support their studies at SIUE. New students are eligible for the Competitive Graduate Award and Graduate Scholar Award. Current students are eligible for research grants for graduate students, research grants for doctoral students and travel grants.

Graduate students may also apply for a graduate assistantship. Through an assistantship, graduate students associate directly with faculty members engaged in instruction and research. Program-related assistantship applications should be submitted directly to the graduate director of your academic program. Various administrative units also offer assistantships. You can review these opportunities and application requirements here.
