The Raptor Research Center administers support from the state legislature for the Master of Science in Raptor Biology program. These state-appropriated funds are used largely to provide teaching assistantships and research support to graduate students and to faculty associated with the Raptor Biology graduate degree program. Teaching assistantships that include a stipend, a tuition and fee waiver, and student health insurance are available on a competitive basis. Additional support for master’s research projects may be available from faculty members.
The Raptor Research Center provides all Raptor Biology graduate students with support toward participation in two professional meetings at which the students present results of their research. The Raptor Research Center also has modest funds for a Graduate Student proposal competition and some equipment to support student research. The RRC provides office space, computers, and basic office services to Raptor Biology graduate students and to students earning a Master of Science or Master of Arts in Biology.
Other forms of financial aid, such as loans or the College Work Study Program, are available to graduate students. Prospective students should contact the Financial Aid Office and consult the Boise State University catalog.
