Kansas University‘s Lydia Ash, Graduate Secretary: “We try to fund (with a GTAship) all students accepted to our program—MAs, MFAs, and PhDs. The current stipend is $14,000. GTA appointments pay up to to nine hours of credit per semester, but does not cover insurance or campus fees.
Here are our admissions numbers the past few years. ‘Complete’ means a complete application that was considered for admission. ‘Admit’ is how many students we offered admission to the program, and ‘Accept’ is how many students took our offer. MA 1 is Literature, MA 2 is Composition and Rhetoric. For the PhDs, CR is Composition and Rhetoric, CW is Creative Writing, and Lit is Literature tracks.”
