Even as students, Computer Scientists are in demand. During the 2017-18 and 2018-19 academic years, 85-90% of our graduate students were on full-time support. Of approximately 250 graduate students at the Blacksburg campus during that period, we hired about 75 GTAs, and 100 GRAs. About 25 students were hired by other units on campus or in the CRC, and about 25 had outside funding from their government, company, fellowship, etc.
