Graduate Teaching or Research Assistantships
Departments offer more than $11.4 million in assistantships each year, providing students with practical teaching and research experience in the classroom or lab while offsetting the costs of education.
Many departments offer further research assistantships funded by research grants.
Most assistantships are offered for the eight-month academic year between September and April, however some continue through the summer months. Part-time assistantships also are available. Most departments suggest students apply by March 1 for assistantships beginning in September.
Students should contact the graduate coordinator of their chosen department for more information about assistantship funding.
