A limited number of graduate assistantships are available. They provide financial support for students during professional experiences in chosen fields of specialization or in activities that may be valuable in preparing them more fully for their future occupational roles. Duties of a graduate assistant may include participa­tion in research, instructional and guidance services, and professional activities. Assistantships are open to graduate students with evidence of maturity and potential to benefit from the program.

Applications will be considered from graduate applicants, postgraduates, and current graduate students. Stipends are awarded for periods up to 12 months. Full or partial remission of tuition and fees for approved courses during the period of the assistantship is also available.  Application forms for graduate assistantships may be obtained by writing directly to the department. The deadline for receipt of application for the following year is April 15.


Prior to each graduation, graduate students with exceptional academic records are nominated by the graduate faculties for the Graduate Dean’s Scholastic Achievement Award. This award consists of: (1) a certificate of distinction and (2) a cash award.
