WWC Graduate Bulletin


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.  Recipients of assistantships in the School of Education and Psychology must be fully admitted to a Masters program.
