Scholarships and Fellowships for International Students

In order to provide opportunities to highly qualified prospective and current international students, the university offers competitive scholarships and fellowship opportunities.

Department Scholarships

Department or private scholarship may be available. Unfortunately funding from federal or public sources is not applicable to non-resident international students. Check with your department or the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to learn what funding options may be available.

Graduate Assistantships

Fully admitted graduate students may seek assistantship positions through their academic department or university office at UA Little Rock. Positions may include research opportunities, teaching positions or administrative duties. The value of a Graduate Assistantship is determined by the hiring department but usually includes an out-of-state tuition waiver, 9 credit hours of tuition payment per semester and a monthly stipend. Positions may be offered on a full-time basis (20 hours per week and full tuition) or half-time basis (10 hours per week and half tuition).

Students interested in graduate assistantship positions should contact their graduate program coordinator. Once a position is granted, students may use the job offer letter as part of their proof of funding required for the Form I-20. Graduate assistants will still be responsible for paying their fees, health insurance and living expenses.
