A stipend may be paid to a full–time degree candidate for various types of activity. The duties of a graduate assistant may include participation in a practicum, as an apprentice in a laboratory or applied setting, library work for the department or for a research group (normally in cases where it is possible for students to make small but constructive contributions to group research projects), administrative, clerical and research work. Formal arrangements for work in this category are made with the program director after admission. It should be noted that neither a master's nor a Doctoral candidate is permitted, while registered as a full–time student, to accept more than ten hours of paid work per week through the University.
Please contact your graduate program for more information.
