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.
