Graduate assistantships for full-time Higher Education Administration(HIED) doctoral students are available through the HIED program and various BGSU administrative offices. Assistantships are available in both administration and research. The assistantship stipend and tuition scholarship represent the substantial commitment by the University to students' education.

These positions provide an opportunity to acquire valuable experience. The majority of graduate assistantships are half-time, nine month positions, requiring 20 hours of work per week. If students are offered and accept a graduate assistantship, the stipend will be $15,000 for the academic year, paid bi-weekly. Students will receive a tuition scholarship for the 64 credit hours of the program. If you are not an Ohio resident, the scholarship will cover the non-resident fee on the credits covered by the scholarship. After the first year, the scholarship will not cover the non-resident fee for domestic (US) students as Ohio residency can be established; international students will continue to have their non-resident fees covered.

Renewal of assistantship awards is possible. An approved Tentative Degree Plan (TDP) on file in the Graduate College is required for processing the second year contract. Funding as a graduate student is available for a maximum of three years at the doctoral degree level. Funding for a fourth year is not guaranteed but may be available, provided that you have successfully defended your preliminary exam and your dissertation proposal.

To retain an appointment, graduate assistants must make satisfactory progress toward a degree, and must perform duties satisfactorily according to the terms of the appointment.

The HIED program is fortunate to have an on-going relationship with a number of potential assistantship sites, typically at least as many as we have entering full-time students. Prospective students must interview with these supervisors and receive an offer to secure a graduate assistantship. The university will coordinate the interview process for invited prospective students who apply by December 1 by arranging an Interview Weekend (known as I-Days) early in the spring semester. Those applications reviewed after the Interview Weekend will receive help but will need to arrange interviews directly with the assistantship sites.
