Graduate Assistantships

The UF College of Veterinary Medicine offers graduate assistantships that cover stipend and/or tuition expenses. Graduate assistants are engaged in teaching and/or research tasks; the stipend is $31,000 to $45,000 per year, depending on available funding.  Designated mentors can offer additional funding to students with exceptional credentials.

Health insurance and tuition waivers are available for students on assistantships. All students are required to pay nonacademic fees. For new students who may need a cash advance when arriving on campus, there is a graduate student revolving loan fund at the college.
