Each year Lincoln Memorial University offers a limited number of graduate assistantship
positions when funding is available. When a graduate assistantship is well-conceived
and executed, it serves as an ideal instrument to facilitate progress toward a graduate
degree while assisting with expenses.
- Before applying for a graduate assistantship, an applicant must have applied for enrollment
in a graduate program. All requirements for admission to degree candidacy must be
completed before a graduate assistantship position can be awarded.
- To apply for a graduate assistantship, students must thoroughly read the Graduate
Assistant Handbook, complete the application (found here), and submit three character reference letters (non-relative) to the Office of Enrollment
& Student Affairs (DAR Hall 214). Letters must be signed by the person providing the
reference or be sent to [email protected] from the person’s email address.
- Academic or University departments seeking graduate assistants will review applications
and conduct interviews. Students will be contacted if a department wishes to interview
them for an open position.
- The Office of Enrollment & Student Affairs will issue an award letter to each student
receiving a graduate assistantship. The letter must be signed by all parties before
the student can begin work.
