Flexible Graduate Assistantship Program

A pool of 15 supplemental graduate assistantships are available every two years on a competitive basis. Criteria for evaluation are below.  Departments are responsible for submitting a prioritized list to the Student Financial Aid office in early March.

The criteria for these graduate assistantships are:

  • Program quality.
  • Current and proposed graduate assistantship utilization and expectations.
  • Program capacity and graduate assistantship need.
  • Applicant quantity and quality.
  • Contribution to fulfilling the directives of the current Academic Plan.
  • Student mentoring guidelines.
  • Recruiting plan.

Contributing to the strengthening research and to enhancing the doctoral component of the graduate enterprise also will be evaluation metrics. Utilization plans for the assistantships must balance a meaningful teaching experience with a research component. Units who have received a competitive assistantship in the past from this program are eligible to apply, however, they should specifically describe the accomplishments of the past assistantship.
