New graduate students are typically supported as teaching assistants (TA) during their first year, and then financial support is generally provided by TA positions, fellowships, or by graduate research assistant positions thereafter depending on the funding status of the permanent research group.

The University of Texas School of Graduate Studies offers multiple fellowships for new and continuing graduate students.  Prospective and current students are automatically considered for these awards, and outstanding candidates are nominated by supervising professors.  Please visit the Graduate School Fellowship website for more information.

The College of Natural Sciences has compiled an exhaustive list of major outside funding opportunities through their Strategic Research Initiatives program.  Chemistry graduate students and Postdoctoral Fellows are encouraged to apply.
