Graduate Assistantships

Opportunities for graduate assistantships are available for both our doctoral degree and master’s degree students. Most of the doctoral graduate assistants work in either research or teaching positions; master’s degree graduate assistants serve in many capacities (e.g., assisting faculty with large classes, writing and editing newsletters, supporting communication efforts in other departments on campus). All positions provide a stipend and potential tuition fee supplement.


Deadline for Fall Scholarships: 
April 1

Deadline for Spring Scholarships:
