Graduate Assistantships

Merit-based Graduate Assistantships are available for exceptionally qualified full time applicants. No additional application is required; all full-time students are considered automatically at the time of admission.

A Graduate Assistantship is an opportunity to assist business faculty in research, teaching and/or outreach activities while earning your degree and to receive compensation (a stipend) and a tuition scholarship in return. Most Assistantships are partial in nature and require students to work 10 hours per week. For the Fall and Spring semesters during which a student serves in an assistantship, the Lerner College will also provide a 50% tuition scholarship. Graduate Assistants receive a stipend of $4,375 per term (Fall: September 1 – December 31; Spring: February 1 – May 31) for a 10 hour Assistantship.  The exact working days are determined by the department to which the student is assigned.

 Corporate Associates Program

The Corporate Associates Program is an elite internship program for full time students that gives top Lerner College graduate students an opportunity to gain valuable on-the-job experience with a corporate sponsor. These positions pay a stipend of $8,750 per term and include a 50% tuition scholarship in exchange for working 20 hours/week for the employer.  These positions are awarded based on interviews with the employer and the program is coordinated through the Lerner Career Services Department.   International students must be on an F-1 visa for at least 9 months prior to applying for a position due to visa regulations.
