2024-2025 Graduate Student Assistantship Application Priority Deadline

Salem State's School of Graduate Studies offers a wide range of graduate and research assistantship opportunities, which benefit both students and faculty.

There are two types of assistantships administered through the School of Graduate Studies:

Graduate Assistantships provide students with professional development opportunities and work experience through involvement with projects that support university projects.

Research Assistantships link a graduate student with a faculty member to work on a meaningful research project, which may lead to a presentation at a conference, a joint publication or other significant professional activity. 

Each assistantship consists of 10 hours per week or 160 hours each semester (fall and spring) at $17/hour during the fall and spring semesters (excluding summer and winter sessions). Schedules are subject to agreement between the graduate/research assistant and their supervisor.

Students enrolled in a graduate program for the 2024-2025 academic year should apply for graduate and research assistantships by the priority deadline of Monday, March 4, 2024.
