The Department of Physics will grant two Provost Fellowships and one Presidential Fellowship to incoming students of the Fall 2017 semester. All applicants to our PhD Programs are eligible (no additional application is needed). The Provost and Presidential Fellowships are designed to assist departments with the recruitment of superior doctoral students. In addition to the graduate research or teaching assistantship, the recipients of the Provost Fellowship will receive $2,500 for one academic year, and the recipients of the Presidential Fellowship will receive $5,000 for one academic year renewable for a second year.
All our incoming Ph.D. students are offered Graduate Teaching Assistantships for the academic year. The Assistantships currently total $15,050 for the Fall and Spring semesters, and an additional support of $5,000 is almost always available for the Summer. Students also receive matriculation fee waivers for the Fall and Spring semesters which will total approximately $16,696 for non-resident of Floridas and $5,467 for Florida residents. Waivers are also likely to be available for the Summer semester as well in the amount of $5,566 (non-residents) and $1,823 (residents).
The Physics Admissions Committee will review the applicant's documents on a preliminary basis to assess the chances of acceptance prior to submitting an official application and paying the application fee. Based on this preliminary review, the Physics Department will inform the applicant whether or not to proceed with the official application process with FAU's Graduate College. If the applicant receives a favorable recommendation to proceed, the applicant must apply online at www.fau.edu/graduate. To contact an individual faculty member in the Department of Physics, please visit the faculty pages on our website at physics.fau.edu.
