Graduate Assistantships

MPH students who name UNC as their home campus may apply for Graduate Assistantship (GA) positions. Two students are selected annually to serve as GAs in the Community Health Program, and a limited number of GA positions are available in other programs on the UNC Campus.

In return for ten hours per week of assistance with faculty research, class preparation and programmatic support, GAs in the Community Health Program receive a stipend and payment of a portion of Colorado School of Public Health tuition and UNC student activity fees (excluding technology fees). The terms of GA positions outside Community Health vary by program. Many programs calculate tuition benefits on UNC, versus CSPH, tuition rates and do not pay any portion of fees. Be certain you review and understand the terms of your employment.

In order for tuition payments to be correctly applied to your Colorado School of Public Health account, all MPH students who accept GA positions on the the UNC Campus must notify Esta Lukemire prior to the start of classes. Students will need to provide the program and contact person for whom they will be working, and the terms of their employment.
