Funding Opportunities

Departmental Funding

We strive to provide funding for our incoming students, but admission does not guarantee funding. Each year we receive a fellowship or two from the College of Arts and Sciences, in addition to several funding packages that consist of Graduate Assistantship positions that range from teaching, to working with Traditional Arts Indiana, the Archives of African American Music and Culture, the Archives of Traditional Music, the American Folklore Society, the Journal of Folklore Research, etc.

Every year in the spring, current students may apply for additional years of funding through the department.
