The graduate assistantship program offers graduate students an opportunity to participate in academic and administrative activities that will enhance their graduate education experience, as well as provide financial assistance. In addition to this application and skills inventory, information in the applicant's admission file may be assessed. To be eligible for a graduate fellowship, an applicant must be:
a) Admitted to a MAE Res Cert program at PLU
b) Maintain a minimum cumulative 3.0 graduate grade point average
c) be enrolled full-time [4 credits or more except J-term] during the semester/term of the assistantship.
A limited number of assistantships are available during the academic year. Full awards are very rare. In general, assistantship awards are for interactions and opportunities involving time commitments between five and ten hours per week. Criteria for awarding assistantships may include any combination of the following:
a) Skills and Abilities
b) Academic Merit
c) Potential for Success
d) Contribution to the miss of the graduate program and University
Assistantships may be considered taxable income.
