School of Education Assistantships
Graduate assistantships offering tuition fellowships and financial stipends are available through the school. Assistantships offer a stipend, while tuition fellowships pay for 24 semester hours of coursework. Assistantships are limited in number, are available only to full-time graduate students, and are awarded on a competitive basis. In the past, a greater number of assistantships have been awarded to doctoral students rather than master's degree-seeking students. For doctoral students, the university also sponsors university fellowships, teaching fellowships and dissertation fellowships. The latter two fellowships are available only to advanced graduate students.
The Division of Student Development offers graduate assistantships which include a tuition scholarship and a stipend in exchange for 20 hours of work per work in the area of student affairs or student services. For more information, including how to apply, visit the Graduate Assistantship Information page.
