Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistants at the University of Montevallo are students first and employees second. They have as their primary focus advanced study and ultimately the completion of a graduate degree. Therefore, the services they provide as graduate assistants should complement professional development in their chosen fields of study.

Graduate assistants are employed on a semester basis and may be continued for no longer than three calendar years. They must maintain the cumulative 3.0 grade point average required of all graduate students and must perform satisfactorily in the judgment of the employing department and supervisor.

Graduate assistants not completing practicum or internship requirements may not be permitted to work beyond an average of twenty (20) hours per week.

Complete information on Graduate Assistantships is available in the Financial Information and Services chapter of the Graduate Bulletin.

Graduate Student Research/Conference Funding

Funding is set aside each year for graduate students to conduct research or present work at academic conferences. Requests for awards should be approved by your faculty advisor and endorsed by the department chair. The application should include a proposed projected budget of expenses, information about department cost sharing, and specific travel details (if travel is involved).
