What is a Graduate Assistanship?
Graduate Assistantships (GA’s) provide financial support for students, while students gain valuable supervised professional experience in the field. Available on a competitive basis, GA’s can be completed at Buffalo State, or at one of the surrounding institutions (i.e. Medaille College, Daemen College, Hilbert College, SUNY Fredonia). Typically, a GA requires 20 hours/week and comes with stipend. If a GA is at Buffalo State, a tuition waiver may also be available.
Applicants who apply to the HESAA program by the priority deadline of January 15th will be invited to participate in HESAA Interview Days. Applicants will be sent a registration form to indicate which positions below they would like to interview for (up to 6) and scheduling arrangements will be made for the applicant. Candidates will also conduct an academic interview with faculty from the HESAA program.
Additional GA opportunities may become available beyond the HESAA Interview Days. Students who have been accepted to the HESAA program should check availability of additional GA positions at Buffalo State on the employment website.
