Revised November 2022 by Dan Morehead.
No service is required of a recipient of a Bodenheimer Fellowship. Once awarded, the student just needs to be enrolled as a full-time student in EECS. The minimum load is determined by the required hours of work for the assistantship. For a ¼-time assistantship, 9 hours during a Fall or Spring semester is the minimum course load. For a ½-time assistantship, 6 hours during a Fall or Spring semester is the minimum course load.
A recipient is generally also offered a choice of the following:
(1) a 1/4-time teaching assistantship in return for working 10 hours per week with a monthly stipend of $625 with tuition and health insurance paid.
(2) a 1/2-time research assistantship in return for working 20 hours per week with a monthly stipend of $1500 (or higher) with tuition and health insurance paid.
(3) a combination of 1/4-time teaching and 1/4-time research assistantships in return for working 20 hours per week with a monthly stipend of $1,375 (or higher) with tuition and health insurance paid.
Minimum stipend for a 20-hour assistantship: $16,500 = $1,375.00 x 12 months
Tuition and fees are listed for in-state:
Fall (9+ hours): $6,690
Spr (9+ hours): $6,690
Sum (6 hours): $4,426
Tuition Total: $17,676
Healthcare Ins. = $224 x 12 = $ 2,688
GTA Total: $36,684 = $2,688 + $17,676 + 16,500
A GTA/GRA assistantship is worth over $36K per year including tuition and health insurance.
With the Bodenheimer Fellowship of $12K, the package exceeds $48K.
