Gradute Assistantship Opportunities

We offer a limited number of graduate assistantships, which are awarded on a highly competitive basis. The awards range from two-thirds time (requiring 13 hours of work per week) to full-time (requiring 20 hours of work per week). Both awards carry full tuition waivers for multiple semesters and a summer term, as well as a stipend for two semesters, contingent on maintaining a 3.0 GPA and satisfactory academic progress. Students work for the School of AFED as well as assisting faculty with courses and research.

Assistantship recipients must satisfy all of the admissions prerequisites without any deficiencies. To be eligible for an assistantship, entering graduate students must have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 and remain in good academic standing.
