Participating in teaching and research is an important part of the professional development of graduate students in the Department of Educational Psychology. A limited number of graduate assistantships are available through the department and the Oscar and Luella Buros Center for Testing. These are awarded on a competitive basis to qualified students. Students must be proactive in their search for assistantships. Typically, 85% of the doctoral students seeking assistantships are able to obtain one. However, assistantships for master level students are less frequently available within the department. Please make note that, while most students prefer an assistantship within their home department, you may obtain an assistantship anywhere on campus. For example, EDPS Graduate students have applied for assistantships in the office of Graduate Studies, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and other departments across campus. 

Most assistantships include tuition remission (up to 12 credits per semester and in some cases 12 credit hours in the summer) during the semester of the appointment. The assistantships typically require 13 to 20 hours of service per week. Some graduate assistantships are available during the summer sessions as well; however most assistantships and fellowships are awarded for fall and spring semesters. Other assistantship opportunities/funding opportunities are listed in the Weekly Wednesday. 

For more information concerning graduate assistantships contact your program director. Program directors are listed on the websites for each program area. You may also contact Kyle Burke at (402) 472-2223 or by email at
