Graduate Assistant Scholarships
Financial aid is available in the form of graduate assistantships, including teaching assistantships and research assistantships. Those awarded teaching assistantships receive tuition remission and a nine-month stipend to support their study. All certified/licensed teachers are eligible for a 33% tuition scholarship.
Graduate Assistants provide crucial professional services in the Department of English. Graduate Assistants are full-time students, but their workload typically includes assisting a faculty member in a composition course during the first semester of study and then teaching one composition course during the second semester of the first year.
Second-year GAs typically teach one or two composition courses each term. GAs may also be invited to serve as tutors in our writing center.
