Continuous Recruitment Graduate Assistantship (1109-2022)


You must be admitted to the sociology graduate program to be considered for an assistantship.

Position Description

Financial aid for sociology graduate students is available in the form of a limited number of graduate assistantships. In addition to providing financial aid and a tuition waiver, assistantships also serve as an important educational experience by offering opportunities for graduate students to work closely with faculty members in their teaching, research and community service activities. Assistantships are available to both domestic and international students. Please refer to the Graduate School website for more information about assistantships.

All department graduate assistantships begin in the Fall semester, we do not typically offer assistantships beginning in Spring or Summer semesters. Students should apply to the Department by April 15 for graduate assistantships beginning the following fall semester. In order to be considered for an assistantship, however, you must already be accepted into the graduate program. Thus, those interested in an assistantship should apply for entry into the graduate program no later than February 15.
