Graduate Assistantships and Student Employment

Graduate Assistantships

A few graduate assistantships are offered to new full-time students each year. Graduate Assistants work with an Atkinson School faculty member or administrator on special projects, research, etc. Graduate Assistants are paid an hourly wage of $10 per hour and work approximately 75 hours per semester (150 hours for the academic year) for maximum earnings of $1,500 during the academic year. Graduate Assistantships are awarded to qualified students at the time of admission and no special application is required.

Federal Work Study

Federal work-study is a form of need-based financial aid and requires submission of a FAFSA. Federal work-study students generally earn between $7.25 and $12 per hour. Although government regulations allow students to work up to 20 hours per week, the Atkinson School recommends students limit their work to 10 hours or less per week.
