Graduate Application Fee Waivers Available
To promote more diversity within the applicant pool, the AE School will waive a limited number of application fees for applicants who are members of underrepresented groups. To be considered for the next cohort of fee waivers, please send a copy of your resume or transcript to Mrs. Tasha Koon between September 15 and December 1, 2021. In the message, please let us know the aspect of your identity that is underrepresented (such as your racial/ethnic group). The request for a waiver will not affect admissions decisions.

Each week, the AE School issues an e-newsletter, The AErial View, that lists links for fellowships, scholarships, internships, and jobs that are highly relevant to AE students of all ranks. The newsletter will come to your Georgia Tech email in-box, so look for it and see what you are eligible to pursue. And if you miss an installment, visit the AErial View archives.

A majority of Georgia Tech AE graduate students offset the cost of their education through graduate research assistantships (GRA), graduate teaching assistantships (GTA) or positions as academic graders (GA). These positions can trigger a significant break in a student's tuition. The School does not guarantee placement in any of these positions and cannot restore funds for sponsored research assistantships, so it is important that grad students pursuing GRAs, GTAs and grading positions remain fully informed of their funding status from semester to semester.
