Financial Aid

Financial Aid

The department offers graduate teaching assistantships to students pursuing graduate degrees. Among available awards, the following are of interest to students of French:

  • Doctoral Student Research Fund: designed to support KU doctoral students on the Lawrence campus who need assistance to carry out research that advances progress toward the degree.
  • Graduate Scholarly Presentation Travel Fund: intended for graduate students presenting a paper at a national or regional meeting of a learned or professional society.

Other funding opportunities for graduate students include the Office of Study Abroad’s Springer award; the department’s Cornell, Mahieu, and Magerus fellowships; awards for research abroad; and French university exchanges.

Financial Aid and Scholarships administers grants, loans, and need-based financial aid.
