Assistantship Programs

Graduate Student Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships offer financial support to graduate students while they progress through their academic studies. They are offered by universities to support graduate students enrolled within in their programs and typically involve a stipend and/or compensation in exchange for a set of predefined duties. There are two common types of assistantships: 1) teaching assistants who assist professors with instructional responsibilities and grading, and 2) research assistants who assist a professor or research organization with academic research activities.

The following spreadsheet outlines graduate assistantships that have been submitted to NCME. This list is by no means exhaustive and may become out of date, so we encourage students to contact programs listed below to confirm current opportunities. We also encourage students to contact programs that are not listed to find out what opportunities they may offer. 

The spreadsheet can also be viewed directly here.

This page is maintained by the Graduate Student Issues Committee (GSIC). The posting of these assistantships does not constitute an endorsement from NCME.
