Graduate Assistants

Harding University has two types of graduate assistantship programs:

University Level Graduate Assistantships: These graduate assistantships are those that are available university-wide on a competitive basis.  They are funded by the Office of Academic Affairs.

A complete description of the program, including all forms, can be found in the Graduate Assistantship Handbook (pdf).  All forms are also available below:

College or Department Level Graduate Assistantships:  There are some graduate assistantships available directly from certain colleges or departments.  These are specific to the sponsoring college or department, which handles both the eligibility criteria and the funding.  For information regarding this sort of assistantship please contact the specific college or department of interest.

Graduate assistants have long been an integral part of university life and serve a dual purpose:  the University benefits from the work of a budding professional, and the participating student benefits from a real-life experience related to his or her area of study, as well as receiving a scholarship and stipend. 

Working together, we can ensure that Harding’s Graduate Assistantship Program provides mutual benefits both to recipient students and to the university at large.
