  • Can I apply for a Teaching/Research Assistantship position?
    Most of our graduate students are supported as teaching assistants in their first year, although a first-year student may occasionally be granted support in the form of a research assistantship.

    The exact amount of an assistantship is set by the state legislature, and will normally increase each year.

    After the first two semesters at the University of Idaho, students are usually ready to begin doing research. Our faculty are awarded grants that enable them to support some students doing research for the M.S. or Ph.D. degree. The amount of a research assistantship is negotiated with the individual faculty member but is similar to the amount of a teaching assistantship.

    Registration fees and tuition are typically covered.
  • What if I want to visit the department before I make a decision?

    We realize that prospective graduate students like to have the opportunity to visit the Chemistry Departments of universities they are considering. As an incentive to visit the University of Idaho, we offer a reimbursement of $250 towards the travel of any student whose application is accepted.
