Funding and Scholarships

The majority of M.S. and Ph.D. students in horticulture are funded by stipends provided by faculty grants. In addition, teaching assistantships are sometimes available. Students with outstanding academic qualifications may also be eligible for University fellowships. Blacksburg is a highly desirable place to live with a relatively low cost of living, making your stipend more valuable. When you submit your graduate application, you are automatically considered for funding.

Students may also seek their own funding through fellowships, nonprofit organizations, or competitive grants programs such as the EPA’s STAR Fellowship, the WPI, or NSF. For more information on seeking independent funding visit the Graduate School.
