RIT does not offer full cost or full tuition scholarships. The typical maximum scholarship amount is $20,000 per year.
Assistantships are student employment opportunities for full-time graduates to gain working experience and earn money for personal expenses. They are made available to full-time matriculated graduate students to serve as teaching, research, or administrative assistants. Graduate assistants receive wages, determined by the department making the appointment, in exchange for work performed.
There are three primary types of assistantships:
Help faculty in classroom settings, mark assignments, offer mentorship to classmates
Help faculty perform research for ongoing projects
Help faculty with administrative work
