Financial support for graduate study in Operations
Research at Rutgers is coordinated through RUTCOR. Students are
supported in a variety of ways,
which include teaching, graduate and research assistantships in the
participating departments of RUTCOR or in RUTCOR itself, research
assistantships on faculty members' research projects, fellowships, and
teaching jobs. Applications for financial support should be included
with the application for admission, and are due by January 15th for the
following academic year (beginning in September). Late applications for
financial support will be accepted as long as support is available.
For the academic year 2010/11 assistantships for
carry a stipend of $23,112.00 for 9 months, plus the waiver of tuition,
plus substantial benefits. Additional support over the summer is
sometimes available. Students receiving financial support should report
to the department, program, or faculty member providing the support.
Normally, students will have been contacted by this department, program
or faculty member in advance. Questions about where to report should be
directed to the RUTCOR office.
Renewal of support is not guaranteed, but is
contingent on excellent
in course work, on the qualifying examination(s), in research (for more
students), and in job responsibilities. Students in the program are
expected to apply to the Graduate Director for continued support by
