Graduate Assistantship Program

On-campus graduate students are eligible to apply for graduate assistantships. Graduate assistants work closely with faculty and administrators in teaching, scholarship, or academic support activities. They are contracted for an academic year (October - May), and work the equivalent of 10 hours per week, scheduled to meet the needs of the student-faculty pairing. Payment is $3,400 per academic year, issued in eight monthly allotments of $425. The application period is from May 15 to June 22, 2015. To apply:

  • Fill out application form (available May 15) and submit with a two-page writing sample and a current resume.
  • Send to Graduate School of Education by June 22.
  • Final results will be sent to all applicants. Accepted students and their faculty mentors will be notified by June 30.
