Teaching Assistantship
A number of assistantships are available each year for qualified applicants. Most assistants teach laboratories of discussions in physical geography. The standard nine-month assistantship carries a stipend of over $11,430 plus remission of up to twelve hours of tuition each semester including summer school. Assistants are expected to work 20 hours per week.

UNO is committed to affirmative action. Applications for admission and for graduate assistantships from women and members of minority groups are encouraged. As an equal opportunity employer, UNO is seeking the best qualified persons for graduate assistantships

What is a Graduate Assistantship?

A graduate assistantship is similar to part-time employment. The graduate assistant is hired, receives graduate tuition remission, paid salary (stipend), given a work schedule, and assigned responsibilities.

Graduate assistants are assigned responsibilities which provide supervised educational experiences at the graduate level. Frequently, this means assistants either teach or participate in research projects.

How do I apply for an assistantship?

Print out the Graduate Assistantship application form, complete, and send to the chair of the Geography Graduate Program.
