Financial Aid for Graduate Students

  • EMIS Department financial support:

Teaching Assistantships: The EMIS Department has a small amount of financial aid in the form of teaching assistantships for students studying for a Ph.D. in Operations Research.  There is normally no financial aid for students studying for the Master of Science and Doctor of Engineering degrees.

Students that have been accepted into the Ph.D. in Operations Research program can apply for financial aid by sending a request to:

Graduate Assistantship Committee
Dept. Engineering Management, Information and Systems
Southern Methodist University
P.O. Box 750123
Dallas, TX 75275-0123

An in-person interview is required and will be scheduled if assistantship positions are available in upcoming semesters.

Research Assistantship:  Individual EMIS Faculty members may have research funding to support Ph.D. students.  For further information, eligible students should contact the appropriate faculty members about the availability of this type of support and the background needed for such a position.
