Each year, the Composition and Applied Linguistics program is allocated a limited number of graduate assistantships. At IUP, these graduate assistantships are selectively awarded to highly qualified graduate students who have been admitted to degree programs. Assistantships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence rather than financial need. Graduate assistantships are under the supervision of the Composition and Applied Linguistics faculty.
Duties may include assisting on a research project, library research work, course assistance, or tutorial aid in the Writing Center or the American Language Institute. Assistantships may be renewable for a second year. Assistantships are not available during the summer. The School of Graduate Studies and Research (SGSR) issues assistantship contracts, and the Composition and Applied Linguistics program director makes assignments of graduate assistants to faculty members.
Twenty-hour full assistantships (awarded only to full-time graduate students):
Eight-hour or 10-hour half assistantships (awarded only to full-time graduate students):
Stipends for assistantships may change from year to year. Potential applicants should check with SGSR for current stipend levels.
The deadline for applying for a Fall assistantship is March 15 of the same calendar year.
Students should contact the graduate school to apply for graduate assistantships. The graduate school issues assistantship contracts, and the program director makes assignments of graduate assistants to faculty members. For more information, please visit the Financial Aid office.
International Students: Assistantships cannot be used to indicate financial support on the IUP Foreign Student Financial Statement Form.
