Graduate Assistantships and Partial Waiver Packages
For the coming academic year, the Brooks College of Health anticipates awarding several graduate assistantship/partial tuition waiver packages and several partial tuition waiver only packages (without graduate assistantship). All of these packages are for students new to BCH graduate programs, and will be granted for a maximum two year period for those students maintaining eligibility, and satisfactory performance in the assistantships. Occasionally, students relinquish their packages prior to the end of the two year award. In these cases the remainder of the award will be given to another student, however the award will end at the time the original award was scheduled to end.
NOTE: All fee waivers are partial, and do not cover the total cost of fees. All fee waiver packages are subject to funding.
Graduate assistants are assigned to faculty and work as a research assistant or a teaching assistant, depending on the needs of the faculty person. Graduate assistants are expected to work approximately 10 hours per week for a maximum of 150 hours total for each semester. The work is compensated at the rate of $10.00 per hour or a total of $1,500 over the course of the semester.
Eligibility requirements for all partial waiver/graduate assistantship and partial waiver only packages are as follows: The applicant must:
