Almost all chemistry graduate students at Clemson are supported on either teaching or research assistantships during the full course of their studies. Students in the first year of study are normally supported as teaching assistants in undergraduate laboratory sections. Stipends for teaching assistantships are competitive and change frequently.
Research assistantships are often available to support students working on funded research projects. Department and University fellowships that can supplement the stipend for well-qualified applicants are also available. Students who are not native English speakers must pass a locally administered spoken English exam (the SPEAK test) before being certified to teach laboratory sections. It is expected that such students will pass the test by the end of the first year of study.
