Graduate assistants and student workers are an integral part of many externally funded projects. Whenever possible, grant proposals should include funds for fee waivers. Requests for the Graduate College to cover the fee waiver must be submitted to the Graduate Dean prior to submitting the proposal. If a graduate student's stipend is being funded by a grant/contract, departments and offices can adjust the stipend level and may offer stipends higher than Graduate College's approved rates, with approval from the Graduate College.
Additional expenses may need to be included in the budget to fully support international graduate students (i.e., mandatory health insurance costs). International Services should be contacted for budgeting correct amounts.
