Funding Opportuntities


Recruitment financial offer templates should be used when offering funding to a new, incoming student.  Appointment templates should be used as a follow-up to accepted recruitment offers and for continuing students. 

Any changes to appointment letters or requirements that deviate from the provided templates must receive prior approval from the Graduate College. This includes requirements specific to the appointing unit. Approval from your college-level financial administrator is required before Graduate College review.
