2014-2015 Assistantship Vacancies List

Assistantship selection results will be mailed electronically in early April 2014.

Students awarded graduate assistantships for the 2014-2015 academic year who accept those positions are not eligible to receive scholarship awards as well.

Neither scholarship or assistantship awards are renewed automatically each year. It is the responsibility of the student to reapply each academic year.

Prospective and current Physician Assistant Program graduate students will not be considered for graduate assistantships. The schedule and intensity of Physician Assistant Program studies are not compatible with the requirements and expectations of graduate assistantships.

Students in the Five-Year Speech Language Pathology (SLP) Program may apply for half-time assistantship opportunities in the SLP Department for their fourth year of study by submitting a resume as per the directions on this webpage.
