NHS offers Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs) and Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) to qualified students.

When a student applies to the NHS Graduate Program, they should also complete an application for assistantships here: https://cehs.unl.edu/nhs/assistantships/. This is the same application process used for the fellowships; students only need to complete the process once to be eligible for both assistantships and fellowships.

Graduate assistantships that are 15-19.6 hours/week, include a monthly stipend, tuition waiver, and 79% of the University health insurance premium. Students are responsible for ALL student fees plus the student portion (21%) of the University health insurance premium. The most up-to-date information about insurance for graduate assistants is here, https://studentaccounts.unl.edu/insurance-graduate-assistants.

MS PSD students who are paid an hourly rate of 6 hours/week to provide teaching support are not eligible for NHS assistantship-associated tuition waivers or partial payment of health insurance premiums.
