Graduate Studies Graduate Assistantships (GSGA)

February 8, 2023

Dear Faculty Colleagues:

I am pleased to announce that the School of Graduate and Professional Studies is requesting nominations for the Graduate Studies Graduate Assistantship (GSGA) awards for the 2022-2023 academic year. These highly competitive teaching and research assistantships are available to qualified graduate and doctoral students and provide a wonderful experiential learning opportunity for students to work closely with a department faculty member. Academic departments are encouraged to review the application criteria and student selection process described in detail within the application hyperlinked below.

Details of the GSGA awards are as follows:

These are non-need-based teaching or research assistantship awards that are used to support master’s, sixth year professional diploma, and/or doctoral students.

They are open to currently matriculated students with a minimum 3.2 grade point average (GPA) for all undergraduate coursework and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 for all completed graduate coursework.

Selected students will work 10 hours per week for a half-time GSGA or 20 hours per week for a full-time GSGA as either a research or teaching assistant.

Applications for the GSGA can be found on the School of Graduate and Professional Studies webpage: GSGA Application with complete instructions on the nominating process. As in the past, final awards will be contingent upon the availability of funds to match the number of applications received. Please note that nominations must be received electronically by the School of Graduate and Professional Studies no later than: Friday, March 31, 2023, by 4 p.m.

If you have any questions about the nomination process, please don’t hesitate to contact Associate Dean Jonathan Wharton, who will be happy to assist you.

Thank you for all you are doing to make this university such a wonderful place for our students.


Julia Irwin Acting Dean, School of Graduate and Professional Studies
