There are opportunities for qualified graduate students to assist faculty with teaching and research on main campus as well as at our CityLab locations. There are positions in three different categories. On main campus students may apply for Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTA) and Graduate Research Assistants (GRA). At our CityLab locations fellowships are available to support faculty teaching and research. Assistantships and fellowships vary in length from one semester to four semesters, depending on need and student qualifications. GTA’s, GRA’s, and Fellowships include a stipend plus a tuition waiver of up to 9 credit hours per semester.
Opportunities on Main Campus
Over one-third of Main Campus graduate students are offered graduate teaching or graduate research assistantships. GTA’s have the opportunity to assist with the full range of courses offered in the School and GRA’s assist with faculty research and are selected by the faculty researchers. Both GTA’s and GRA’s also help with the SoA’s lecture series, gallery exhibitions, media lab supervision, and other School activities.
Opportunities at our CityLabs
CityLabs only offer graduate programs, so opportunities for fellowships are limited. Fellowships involve assisting with studio instruction, providing faculty support, running workshops and labs, and assisting with the digital infrastructure. In most cases, fellowships are awarded after one semester of residence.
If you are interested in being considered for an assistantship or fellowship, note your interest in your letter of intent included as part of your application.
