University of Massachusetts Amherst
University of Massachusetts - Amherst Research Assistantship
The University offers a number of research assistantships in the research programs of various departments. Stipends vary greatly from as little as $5,000 for a half-assistantship to $16,000 for a full-assistantship for the calendar year. International applicants who are awarded assistantships, and who have no supplemental means of support, must make sure that the assistantship is adequate to meet their minimum financial needs (refer to Estimate of Expenses). Graduate assistants are not required to pay tuition charges provided their stipend is $5,000 or higher ($2,500 is the minimum for a one semester waiver of tuition and most fees).
Assistantships are awarded for up to one academic year at a time. A graduate assistantship is not a scholarship, and a full-assistantship requires a work contribution by the student averaging 20 hours per week. Federal and State income taxes will be withheld from earnings.
