Our graduate assistantships, awarded to top students based on academic performance, are an excellent way to help pay for your education while gaining supplemental experience and opportunities to interact with faculty.

In addition to lab and teaching assistantships, grant-supported research assistantships in archaeology are available for one or two students after their first year. Applicants should contact the Applied Anthropology Laboratories for more information.


As a graduate assistant, you’ll receive:

  • tuition remission for both the academic year and the following summer
  • a stipend of $10,671.50 per year

Assistantships are typically renewed for a second year.
