Funding

There are a limited number of teaching assistantships and graduate fellowships available each year to qualified candidates.

The Department of Building Construction Management (BCM) has a limited number of graduate teaching assistantships each year.  The graduate teaching assistantships provide a unique opportunity for graduate students to gain teaching experience and to work with faculty members in classrooms and laboratories related to their area of specialization. 


• To apply for the BCM graduate teaching assistantships, contact Dr. Bryan Hubbard, the department head of Building Construction Management at bhubbard@purdue.edu .  After receiving notification of acceptance as a BCM graduate student, attach a resume to your e-mail describing your construction and teaching experience.  Also, indicate which BCM undergraduate courses you are most qualified to assist.  You can view the list of BCM undergraduate courses at https://tech.purdue.edu/degrees/building-construction-management/plan-of-study  . 
• Note that decisions about graduate assistantships are not made until late May or June.

Depending on the specific award, these fellowships may or may not require a specific work assignment.  Go to https://tech.purdue.edu/degrees/phd-technology/resources/funding to learn more about these opportunities.
