If I am in graduate school, can I get an assistantship?

Graduate Assistantship

For graduate students who attend college full-time, a graduate assistantship may help to defray the overall educational costs. Many students find this a good way to complement their college experience because these positions often allow the student to work with their professors doing research, in a teaching role, or other administrative type function. While the benefits offered vary by institution, typically students receive a waiver of some or all of the tuition and a monthly stipend.
