School Financial Aid

The School of Public Policy has a number of Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs) and Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) available to qualified students.

Usually GRAs are associated with program-related work on research projects, which are supported by external sponsors. GRAs include a tuition waiver and a stipend.

Recent GRA projects include...

  • Evaluating science and math education programs in Atlanta area high schools
  • Evaluating the development and outcomes of scientific collaboration
  • Interdisciplinary cognitive and learning practices in systems biology laboratories
  • Organizational factors in scientific creativity
  • Social networks for women and under-represented minority scientists
  • Stakeholder participation in development of water management districts
  • University science parks and economic development
  • Real-time assessment of nanotechnology research and innovation

In addition, GRA placements may be arranged with associated units at Georgia Tech, and with local government agencies. Applicants are encouraged to review the section on Graduate Financial Information in the Georgia Tech General Catalog and to seek other Fellowships and financial aid.

Flexible Course Scheduling

The School assists this by offering selected core and elective courses in the late afternoon or early evening hours. Students are encouraged to take advantage of corporate tuition reimbursement programs
