Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantship Application

Students interested in pursuing the SRSC may also be interested in a graduate assistantship. While there are a few positions available across campus, most departments hire their "own" graduate students. The SRSC is compatible with several other programs and our students have enjoyed appointments with them. Students who live locally: As soon as your application is complete, you may want to explore one of those opportunities. All applications for GAships are made to the program itself. Please contact the individual indicated.
