Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships are available through graduate programs or departments and the Graduate School. Assistantships usually include a tuition scholarship and a stipend of around $6,450 (20 hours per week for 2 semesters) or $3,225 (10 hours per week for 2 semesters). Some programs may offer a larger stipend and are generally not available for the summer terms.

Duties vary, but most involve either teaching or research responsibilities at UALR and cooperating agencies. Whenever possible, assignments contribute to the student’s field of study. For more information, contact the Graduate School at 501-569-8661.
