Applying to an EWU Graduate Program





Graduate Assistantships

EWU offers graduate assistantships to help students fund their graduate study. At EWU, these assistantships are called Graduate Service Appointments--or GSAs, for short.



Graduate Faculty

Eastern's more than 500 graduate faculty members are active scholars, dedicated teachers and effective mentors. They engage their students in a wide range of supervised and independent research and in the professional preparation required for specialized practice in their chosen fields. The University is awarded millions of dollars each year in competitive grants from external funding agencies for research, training and service. Eastern's graduate students have the exceptional benefit of well-funded research facilities and the student-centered faculty of a comprehensive university.

About EWU

More than 125 years ago, EWU began as a small teacher-education school called the Benjamin P. Cheney Academy. Now the demand for higher education has expanded to include career preparation in fields like business, the sciences and healthcare as well as training for civic and community leadership and the development of the arts. EWU has risen to the challenge of fulfilling this demand with graduate programs in all of these areas.

EWU in the Inland Northwest

Eastern Washington University has campuses in Cheney and Spokane. Our presence can be felt throughout the Northwest. Eastern's mission fosters community involvement and collaboration among faculty, staff, and students. EWU is an important part of our region's economy and way of life.

Eastern's beautiful 300-acre campus in Cheney sits just minutes from more than 20 lakes, rolling mountains, and the Turnbull National Wildlife refuge. Students can enjoy the vast recreational opportunities the Northwest has to offer: fishing, hiking, biking, boating, wildlife viewing, skiing, and more. Spokane, a 20-minute drvie from the Cheney campus, offers abundant internship opportunities, civic involvement, and cultural activities of a major metropolitan area.
