Financial Assistance and Graduate Assistantships


The Department of Construction Management has financial assistance available in the form of graduate teaching/research assistantships and students will be considered for these opportunities at the time of admission acceptance.

Graduate assistantships provide students the opportunity to combine theory and practice while offering financial assistance that includes remission of tuition and/or a stipend. Assistantships allow students to focus on academic coursework and take advantage of other professional opportunities.

Graduate Research Assistantships (GRA) and Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTA) are available (number of positions varies from year to year).

Graduate Research Assistantships

Graduate Research Assistants (GRA) typically work with a professor on a project of importance to scholarship. As GRA positions become available, position announcements will be sent via email to all new and continuing graduate students. These announcements will include specific requirements and directions for applying to the position.

Graduate Teaching Assistantships
Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTA) help in the provision of education services to undergraduates. Responsibilities may range from grading papers through leading discussions or lab sessions to complete independent teaching of a class.
