Graduate Assistantships

Our graduate teaching assistantship includes tuition remission during the academic year and six credits during the summer. In addition, teaching assistants receive a departmental stipend that covers the cost of living in Lincoln. Students are also eligible for departmental fellowships to supplement their assistantship; which can be used to cover student fees. Summer teaching is available to students in Spanish.

Availability of Teaching Assistantships vary each semester, please contact a graduate advisor for current openings. We accept applications at any time, but for fullest consideration, apply before the announced deadline for each semester.


Not all internships are alike - they can be for academic credit or not, full-time during the summer or part-time with your classes, local or far from home, paid or unpaid.
