Graduate assistants are an important part of Plymouth State’s collaborative learning community. They work alongside faculty, staff, and students to help achieve the University’s goals, while gaining valuable experience as assistants, researchers, and teachers.
Graduate assistantships are available on a limited basis to highly qualified graduate students who’ve been fully accepted into a graduate program at Plymouth State. Applications for assistantships should be returned to the Office of Academic Affairs by April 1 for the upcoming year.
There are also a limited number of athletic training graduate assistantships available to admitted students in the advanced master’s athletic training program. Applications for athletic training graduate assistantship consideration must be submitted annually by January 15.
MS programs in Biology, Applied Meteorology, and Environmental Science and Policy award a limited number of research assistantships that are grant funded. Students who are awarded a research grant assist faculty members with research that often informs and complements student thesis and professional work. Students in the science programs should consult with their program advisor to learn about research assistantships.
