Graduate Assistantships and Tuition Grants are designed to serve the needs of the Levin College and to provide academic and professional development opportunities to students. Assistantships and Tuition Grants are competitive, and are awarded to qualified students who have been admitted to Urban Affairs graduate degree programs. Candidates must have an undergraduate or graduate GPA of 3.0 or higher to qualify for and retain a graduate assistantship.
Graduate Assistants work 20 hours per week in their assignment and are required to be enrolled for at least 9 credit hours per semester. Additional employment is generally not permitted. Assistantships provide a full or partial tuition waiver for 9-12 credit hours (at the Ohio-resident tuition rate) and a stipend of $3,600 per semester for master’s degree-seeking students and $5,900 per semester for Ph.D. students.
Tuition Grant recipients work for up to 10 hours per week, and receive an award equivalent to the amount of graduate tuition (at the Ohio-resident rate) for 1-12 credit hours.
While Graduate Assistant and Tuition Grant applications will be accepted throughout the year, the priority application deadline is March 1st for the upcoming academic year (starting in August of the same year).
