Graduate Student Assistantships

Assistantship appointments provide stipend and tuition benefits to a graduate student who engages in teaching, research, and/or service for the UofM. 

Academic units play large roles in the e-contract process used to assign stipends and tuition assistance.  These e-Contracts may include tuition & fees assistance, departmental scholarships and/or a monthly stipend. As part of this process, we are providing a power point presentation that outlines the process of e-Contract benefits:

  • Training Power Point

  • Legend for the financial report - definitions of the residency and definitions of the Tuition & Fees assistance with status explanation
  • Example of the financial report that will help provide departments updated information in the review to determine accuracy of the awarded amounts and the options to amend or change a student e-Contract prior to each semester’s initial payment due date
