UHCL Scholarships

UHCL provides various types of scholarships.  Please review these and apply for the scholarships one is eligible for.  New applicants, especially international or out of state applicants, are encouraged to apply for the Hawk Scholars Scholarship. It is a competitive scholarship based on the criteria of academic merit and dates of unconditional admission and scholarship application.  Therefore, the earlier an applicant applies for admission and for this scholarship, the higher is the chance for receiving this award.  An awardee of the Hawk Scholars Scholarship will be eligible for in-state tuition.

Teaching Assistantships

The Statistics Program provides opportunities to its full-time students, especially international students, to be employed as teaching assistantship. In the past, almost every full-time student in STAT program has been awarded teaching assistantship after their first semester enrolled at UHCL with strong performance. We strongly suggest new applicants to apply for admission early and at the same time apply for the Hawk Scholars Scholarship.  If you reside in the States and also have strong mathematics and statistics background, we encourage you come to see the program chair to explore your chance of receiving an assistantship.

Candidates for assistantships must complete the Graduate Teaching Assistant Application and return it to the department secretary. The renewal of teaching assistantship is subject to satisfactory performance. Teaching Assistant duties include grading homework and conducting help sessions for instructors who teach undergraduate statistics courses.
