Assistantships are awards that provide graduate students the opportunity to enhance their skills in teaching and/or research at GW. Graduate Assistantships are limited and not available in all departments.
Unlike at the undergraduate level, funding at the graduate level at GW is decentralized. This means that schools and departments have their own sources of funding (fellowships and assistantships). These awards are usually made at the time of admission and are limited by program.
Student employment opportunities are available during an individual's time as a student at GW. These hourly wage positions include all Federal Work Study (FWS) jobs that are with an on-campus department or pre-approved off-campus organization. Visit the Student Employment website for more information.
