Graduate Assistantships

Research and Teaching Assistantship Form


Graduate assistantships are paid positions for graduate students which usually involve work as a teaching assistant, research assistant or some other academic assistance to a member of the college. Some of these positions can also provide tuition reduction.

Application for Graduate Assistantship

The College of Technology awards a number of assistantships to incoming and current graduate students each year. New students should be aware that assistantships cannot be awarded until acceptance into the graduate program is official.

Assistantship opportunities for the individual departments can be viewed on our college employment page and in the job opportunities section for ET lab management.


The priority application date is April 1st for Fall applicants. Both new students and current UH students will be considered for assistantships. New students must be admitted to a graduate program at UH. Current students must be in good academic standing and making satisfactory progress toward their degree. Priority will be given to College of Technology graduate students.

Applicants will be notified by mail of decisions concerning their application. The department may request in-person interviews prior to the award of an assistantship. Initial decisions will be made in May, and additional awards may be made through out the summer if positions become available.
