Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistantships are offered through many departments and colleges. Information concerning these types of assistance can be obtained from the department in which the student plans to study. All assistantships are governed by the Policy for the Administration of Graduate Assistantships.

The Graduate School shares openings for graduate assistantships whenever possible. If you have any openings to post, please contact Sean Hendricks (shendrick@utk.edu).
