Florida Institute of Technology
Full tuition scholarships are available for graduate research assistants working toward a doctoral degree through the Doctoral Graduate Research Assistant Tuition Scholarship (DGRATS) Program.
Florida Tech doctoral students and faculty are exploring innovative solutions to the world’s most challenging issues. Now, you can pursue your research, with a Ph.D. scholarship, from a national research university—home to over 34 research institutes and centers, world-renowned faculty and high-tech labs.
Main-campus students who are supported by 15 hours or more per week of research or grant stipends or are on full national fellowships are eligible for the DGRATS program, which is capped at 45 credits. This applies to both new, existing and international students.
Students who enter a doctoral program after completing their B.S. degree are eligible for the DGRATS program once they have completed the equivalent of an M.S. degree through 30-36 credits (depending on the program) and are awarded a graduate research assistantship by a faculty member. If no equivalent M.S. degree aligns with the student’s doctorate program, they must complete 30 credits of their doctoral program to become eligible for the DGRATS program.
Ph.D. scholarships are renewed each semester for students who maintain a GPA of 3.2 or higher and faculty approved stipend funding.
Doctoral students who meet the above criteria should work with their faculty advisor to pursue the DGRATS program.
