School of Education Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistants provide research, instructional, and administrative support to Loyola's faculty and administration. Most spend between seven and 15 hours per week in their assistantship or fellowship role and devote the remainder of their time to their academic pursuits. This combination of service, study, research, and teaching (when applicable) constitutes a full-time commitment. Assistantships and fellowships are competitive positions that are highly sought after. They present a rewarding opportunity for you to participate in a vibrant academic community.

Loyola offers a number of assistantships to new and continuing graduate students in a wide range of professional areas. Each opportunity provides a stipend for which you will be remunerated bi-weekly, and a scholarship which is applied at the start of your assistantship contract. This combination of stipend and scholarship is typically split 50/50 to provide you the greatest pre-tax benefit.

 Only those graduate students who are in a degree seeking program are eligible to apply for a graduate assistantship.

Assistantships become available at the end of the current term as students holding positions complete their
