Financial Aid

Assistantships

The department has a number of Teaching and Research Assistantships. TA positions typically require 20 hours of work per week which consist of teaching several lab sections of our introductory Physical Geography and GIS course. Remuneration is approximately $1,360 per month and includes full tuition waiver up to 9 credit hours and health benefits. Typical TA appointments are for an academic year from late August to early May. Limited TA possibilities exist in the Summer semester. RA positions are typically funded from research grants and RAs work in direct collaboration with one or more faculty. Conditions for RA positions vary but generally have the same terms as TA positions. TA and RA positions are very competitive. When applying to the program you should indicate if you would like to be considered for a TA or RA position
