Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships 

Graduate Assistantships are available to qualified, degree-seeking graduate students, or to students with a master’s level degree seeking a degree-supplementing graduate certificate. An assistantship is awarded to a student primarily to enable him or her to obtain academic, professional or research experience while making progress toward a graduate degree or certificate. The award of a graduate assistantship is contingent on available funds and admission of the student to a degree-granting or certificate-granting graduate program.

This program allows graduate students to receive funding to cover full or partial tuition expenses per semester by working on campus.

  • Recipients of assistantships are selected by individual departments.
  • All assistantships will be included with your total financial aid award.

The UB Career Center's UBworks system includes available graduate assistantship opportunities.  You may also inquire through your department of study.

Additional information, including applications, may be found at the Career Center's Web site.
