Housing and Community Development Fellowship

HCD fellowships are administrated through the School of Urban Affairs & Public Policy. These are graduate assistantships that are funded through a partnership with the City's Division of Housing and Community Development. The fellowship requires 20 hours per week of work with an outside agency (including local government agencies and non-profit community development organizations) in exchange for full tuition remission and a small monthly stipend.

These positions are funded separately from our departmental GA positions and require a separate application. Additional information and a link to the online application can be found here.

Applications are due April 15.

 


The Academic Common Market is a tuition-savings program for students in the 16 Southern Regional Education Board member states who want to pursue degrees in fields that are not offered by their in-state institutions. These students enroll in out-of-state universities that offer the specialized degree programs, and they pay only the in-state tuition rates. Visit the Academic Common Market for more information.
