Graduate Research Opportunities
Graduate students in the College of Education receive many forms of support in their efforts to conduct high-quality research, both as they pursue their own scholarly work and as graduate assistants to faculty-led research projects.
Graduate assistantshipsGraduate assistantships provide opportunities for new and continuing students in the College of Education to assist faculty with research projects, play a role in teaching college courses or provide other services to the college or university.
Students interested in research assistantships should indicate their interest to faculty members whose work matches their interests and to graduate advisors or program coordinators that can suggest opportunities. There are often announcements on bulletin boards around campus. Resumes may also be sent directly to the directors of grant-funded research projects, with cover letters describing how the student’s interests, knowledge and experience fit within the scope of the project.
