Assistantships

A limited number of full or partial graduate assistantships are available in the Department of Educational Psychology. Recipients receive an annual stipend, a tuition waiver, and remission of the out-of-state tuition surcharge (if applicable). Graduate students who are awarded an assistantship are assigned research/administrative responsibilities. There are also two teaching assistantships available within the department for second year students. For students who had an assistantship during the first year of study, the program makes every attempt to secure a graduate assistantship during their second year of study. However, this is not guaranteed and depends on whether there is continued funding and the graduate assistant had strong performance during the first year.

Assistantships may also be available from other offices and departments on campus. To be considered for an assistantship, you must indicate your interest on your Graduate School application.

I am so grateful for being given the opportunity to work as a Graduate Assistant at Miami. It has given me professional experience and the ability to refine my administrative skills, to research subjects relevant to school psychology, and to develop my knowledge of related fields (such as Special Education and Family Studies).

My graduate assistantship through Miami University has allowed me to work side by side with professors, participate in exciting experiences, and given me financial stability.
