Grad students can earn experience, and a stipend!

GSPH employs graduate students each semester as either Teaching Associates (TAs) or Graduate Assistants (GAs).

Graduate Assistantships

Assignment for the GA might include assisting faculty in labs or with research projects, assisting the graduate and undergraduate advisors or assisting students in a computer lab.

Teaching Associateships

Assignments for the TA include teaching undergraduate public health classes. Only students in our joint doctoral programs are hired as teaching associates.


These are one-semester appointments and are renewable to maximum of four semesters. The stipend depends on assignment and experience.
