This is the most common form of student support. Graduate assistantships are employment-based appointments where students, in exchange for their service, receive a stipend, tuition remission, and an institutional contribution toward the health insurance program available only to graduate assistants.
Teaching and research assistantships are offered on a competitive basis and are generally administered by the academic departments. Contact your academic department for more details.
