Graduate Assistantships are prestigious academic awards that allow full-time, degree-seeking students the opportunity to receive a total of $4,000 or $2,000 stipend (depending on the type of assistantship received) and a waiver of tuition to complete their degree in a timely manner while gaining work experiences at the University. Tuition is waived at the current in-state tuition rate only and the student is responsible for any difference.
Graduate Assistants must be matriculated and enrolled full-time in a graduate program. Graduate assistants are required to work at the university in an allocated unit(s) or department(s) for twenty or ten hours per week (depending on the type of assistantship received), September 1st to June 30th. The Graduate Assistantship waiver and stipend may result in a reduction of individual student loan eligibility and/or increased tax liability.
If you are a new full-time graduate student or a full-time graduate student with a GPA equal to or higher than 3.00, you may submit your application to NJCU Graduate Assistantships firstname.lastname@example.org.
Graduate Assistantships are only valid for the academic year awarded and can be awarded for a maximum of 2-years per student. However, Graduate Assistantships are not renewed automatically for the next academic year, and there is no guarantee to be awarded again. All Graduate Assistantship positions are contingent upon the available funding.
The application package will only be accepted between March 1 and April 1 via email unless stated otherwise. (No paper-based application will be accepted).
