The department of Human Centered Design strives to fund all of its PhD students through Teaching Assistantships (TAs) and Research Assistantships (RAs). Students enrolled in full-time study (10 credits/quarter) are eligible for funding but it is not guaranteed. Benefits for TAs and RAs include a tuition waiver and a monthly stipend. For information on the specific benefits, consult the UW Graduate School’s Fellowships, Assistantships and Awards site.
