Many graduate programs offer one of three types of graduate assistantships:  administrative, teaching or research. 

Policy on Role and Status of Graduate Student Appointees (PDF)

Most assistantships are awarded to doctoral students, and some programs fund 100% of their graduate students while others do not.  These competitive awards typically provide compensation in the form of a full tuition waiver in addition to a monthly stipend for 10-20 hours of work per week.   Students should first inquire through their academic program regarding the availability of assistantships; however, other available assistantships and campus jobs are posted through Career Services.
