Federal Work Study Graduate Research Assistantships
Qualified master's students who are eligible for work-study funding may be matched with faculty or staff members whose research or creative projects require a research assistant. Awards of up to $5,000 per academic year (up to 15 hours or work per week) are typically available--contingent upon federal funding. Students must be enrolled in 6 units or more of course work to be eligible. While students are normally nominated by faculty for these positions, they may also apply independently.
