The Department of History has Graduate Assistantships that offer students the chance to develop their professional skills while receiving some financial support via a stipend and a fee waiver. Preference is given to applicants with teaching experience and/or historic preservation experience. Deadlines are March 15 and October 15 yearly, but since Graduate Assistantships are generally held by awardees until they graduate, the assistantships are not always available yearly. However, the Department occasionally receives short-term Graduate Assistantships, so it is always worth putting in an application. Please be aware that if you are a potential new student you also need to apply for program admission through the School of Graduate Studies before a Graduate Assistantship can be awarded to you.
For information on other Graduate Assistantships available elsewhere in the university, visit the School of Graduate Studies page on those positions.
Graduate Students in the Department of History are eligible for certain scholarships including the Alberta Macke Dougan Graduate Scholarship in History, the History Graduate Student Endowed Scholarship, the Stan and Debbie Crader Endowed in History Scholarship, and the Lawrence and Alice Breeze Scholarship in History.
