    At my school (and at almost all others, I think), all MS and PhD students receive full tuition scholarships. We also work as teaching or research assistants, so that we actually make money by going to graduate school. This is the case whether you're a domestic or foreign student. But if you're a foreign student, you need to pass an English proficiency test to be admitted to the graduate program and to teach.

    I get a little over $1,500 per month, and this is common for most schools in the Midwest. They adjust the assistantship based on the cost of living in your particular area. For example, I have a friend who's going to Stanford for a math PhD, who's getting $30,000 per year, which works out to about $2,500 per month (of course he's got a fellowship, so they'd probably pay a bit less to most graduate students).
