Graduate Student Employment
Each year, OSU receives grants from federal and state agencies, public and private foundations, and business and industry to support institutional and individual projects. Funding is awarded to the various departments in most academic colleges and to other research organizations on campus, including experiment stations, centers and institutes. Many of these grants include financial support for graduate students. Interested students should direct inquiries and applications to the department concerned.
Graduate students may be employed as Graduate Teaching or Graduate Research assistants by departments on campus. In addition to monthly stipends, graduate assistants appointed at .20 FTE or above are eligible for a tuition and fee subsidy.
In addition to graduate assistantships, graduate students may be appointed to student hourly positions on campus. These appointments are not eligible for a tuition or fee subsidy.
The maximum combined appointment FTE for all jobs in the OUS system is .49 FTE.
