Graduate Assistantships

Each year Wichita State University appoints a significant number of assistantships to graduate students in degree programs. Assistantships are offered in most academic departments offering graduate degrees and many administrative departments on campus.


To be eligible for an assistantship, students must be admitted to a degree program in either full or conditional standing. Students admitted on probation or placed on academic probation following admission may be eligible for assistantship awards under certain circumstances.

Assistantship Types for Graduate Students

Graduate Research Assistant (GRA)

The primary function of a graduate research assistant (GRA) is to assist faculty members in their scholarly and / or creative activities. Duties may include basic scientific research using laboratory facilities, computer programming or operation, data collection, correlation and preliminary interpretation of data, statistical analysis of data and writing preliminary reports, bibliographical work, or assisting musicians or artists in their creative endeavors. GRAs have the latitude to make decisions involving judgment and / or discretionary choices when collecting data, performing experiments, operating equipment, or assisting in studios or laboratories.

Students wishing to be considered for a research assistantship should indicate their interest to their graduate coordinator or department chair as soon as possible after notification of admission. Applications for assistantships should be submitted directly to the program area where the assistantship is desired.

Student Assistant (SA)

The primary function of a student assistant (SA) is to assist in non-teaching and non-research activities. Specific duties of the SA vary widely, depending on the administrative or academic unit to which they are assigned, but should be at a level to make use of their education and abilities. SAs may assist in various offices if their assignment is to perform more than clerical duties. Computer data entry, record maintenance, reports and survey preparation, correlating data, and answering specific questions are some of the duties SAs will typically perform.


Assistantships are typically advertised and applied to through Handshake. The Career Development Center offers students access to Handshake, an online system where you can search and apply for graduate assistantships and view additional opportunities for on-campus employment, co-op / internship positions and full-time employment. To access Handshake and search for available positions across campus, go to and log in using your myWSU ID and password.

Eligibility Limitations

Graduate assistantships are exceptionally competitive and are not available to all students. Non-degree and certificate-seeking only students are ineligible to hold a graduate assistantship. Undergraduate students admitted under the Senior Rule option, or in accelerated bachelor's to master's programs are not normally considered for assistantship appointments.
