Graduate Assistantships

Graduate School (University-wide) Assistantship
The Graduate School Assistantship is awarded on a competitive basis to help recruit top students to UGA’s graduate programs. Highly qualified students are nominated by their department, and evaluated by a faculty panel. Selections are based on the applicant’s academic record, test scores, recommendations, and other pertinent information.

Graduate School Dissertation Completion Assistantships
Doctoral Research Assistantships are awarded each year on a competitive basis following a highly qualified student's nomination by their major department or school. Each nominee is evaluated by a faculty panel. The Doctoral Research Assistantships are available to doctoral students in their final year of study. These assistantships allow the student to devote time to the completion of their dissertation. At the completion of the assistantship award, the student is expected to have finished the dissertation and graduated.

Written nominations from the faculty for the Graduate School Dissertation Completion Assistantships will be forwarded to the Graduate Studies Committee and decided by that body.
