While we strive to provide funding for our incoming students, admission does not guarantee funding. Study the information on this page to maximize your options for receiving the support needed to enter and complete your graduate degree. You should also consider applying for external forms of support.
If you are admitted to the department, you will be automatically considered for the various associate instructor (AI) and graduate assistant (GA) positions available to first-year students in Folklore and Ethnomusicology. AIs assist with and teach courses, while GAs hold specific assignments with Traditional Arts Indiana, the Archives of African American Music and Culture, the Archives of Traditional Music, the American Folklore Society, and the Journal of Folklore Research.
Each year we are also able to offer one or two fellowships from the College of Arts and Sciences.
In the spring of each year, current students may apply for additional years of funding through the department.
