Most graduate student funding opportunities are administered by the admitting academic departments based upon each department’s available funding. Prospective students should contact the department to which they will seek admission for further information regarding available assistantship opportunities. In addition, the FSU Graduate School has the most comprehensive information regarding financial resources for graduate students: http://www.gradschool.fsu.edu/funding-awards.
FSU's Office of Graduate Fellowships and Awards works closely with current graduate students to help them identify and apply for funding to support their studies.
When making a decision regarding which financial offer to accept for a graduate program, also consider differences in the cost of living differences between different cities in the U.S. (see http://swz.salary.com/CostOfLivingWizard/LayoutScripts/Coll_Start.aspx), the cost of mandatory non-waivable fees like insurance, transportation, technology, etc., and state income tax. Florida has no state income tax, but other states tax anywhere from less than 1% to 13% of all income earned within the state.
