Application for Graduate Assistantship
Employment opportunities for you as an eligible Graduate Assistant.
The Graduate College is here to help you financially. Our Graduate Assistantships (GA) provide UNI graduate students with funding through the form of a stipend so you can go the extra distance.
...I had the opportunity to get exposed to people from different majors and different backgrounds outside of my cohort while I worked as a GA...
The GA Application will be sent to the unit/program selected; thus, separate applications must be submitted if applying for multiple positions. Only one submission per opening is needed, sending more than 1 application per position will be considered as SPAM and might impact negatively on your consideration for the position.
Timing of decisions and funding availability vary among departments and units.
Conditionally admitted students due to GPA reasons are not eligible for funding.
Admission acceptance letters do not include an offer of funding, nor is it implied. You must apply separately for financial support (graduate assistantships, scholarships or Financial Aid). Students will be notified separately of any funding they might receive.
Do not attach transcripts, these materials are not required to make hiring decisions.
