Graduate Students

Graduate Assistantships

A limited number of graduate assistantships are available on a competitive basis. These carry a work expectation of approximately 15-20 hours per week assisting a faculty member. In 2014-2015 assistantships are $11,660 plus remission of tuition costs. In addition, there is an opportunity to receive a summer scholarship for summer study after one has been a graduate assistant during the regular academic year; this scholarship ($1800 in 2014) involves no work duties, but students who wish to receive it must meet the department's requirements for full-time summer study.
