Graduate Funding

The Sculpture Department at Tyler School of Art and Architecture guarantees one full year of funding for each admitted graduate student through Teaching Assistantships. This assistantship offers complete tuition remission and a livable monthly stipend. Many of our incoming graduate students are awarded a second year of funding (full tuition remission and stipend) through University, Presidential and/or Future Faculty Fellowships, in addition to assistantships in Temple Contemporary Gallery and the 3D Foundations Department.


Graduate students can apply for Dean’s Grants to fund creative work. In addition, second year graduate students are eligible for Project Completion Grants of up to $10,000. 


The Ilya and Emilia Kabakov Fellowship in Sculpture 

Upon completion of their studies, Tyler MFA Sculpture students become eligible to apply for The Ilya and Emilia Kabakov Fellowship in Sculpture, an honorary annual grant awarded for past excellence and future promise to help transition from an academic environment to professional studio practice.
