Funding Opportunities for UT Faculty
These programs are administered by the Graduate School. You may wish to check our additional list of faculty resources. More funding resources may be available from a faculty member's college or department.
FRAs offer paid leave during a long semester and SRAs provide two months of summer support.
Awards for travel to Big XII institutions for one to two weeks.
All tenured and tenure-track faculty members (Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor and Instructor), and emeritus faculty are guaranteed up to $1,200 per academic year for travel expenses to present original papers at scholarly and professional meetings. Senior Lecturers and Distinguished Senior Lecturers with at least five years of service at UT Austin are also eligible for these awards.
Diversity Mentoring Fellowship program is to help faculty members at The University of Texas at Austin bring outstanding new graduate students to campus that add to the diversity of our campus and mentor them. $16,000 stipend plus Tuition Assistance benefit.
The Office of Graduate Studies has some funding to support editorial graduate research assistantships. These are intended to provide partial support to graduate students who are doing substantial editorial work to assist a faculty member who is serving as editor of a journal. The amount of the award can vary from a "tuition award" to a part-time Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) appointment depending on need, number of applications received, and the funding available. Stipends are typically $7000 - $8000 for a 10 hour GRA appointment.
