WRTC provides graduate assistantships (GAs) to qualified applicants. Assistantships cover all in-state or out-of-state tuition costs and provide a semi-monthly stipend. Working closely with faculty members, GAs support the faculty’s scholarly interests by participating in ongoing research and teaching projects. GAs may also be assigned to assist with special projects like webpage and social media content creation and project managment for national conferences and other on-campus events. Second-year GAs may also teach their own sections of first-year composition - WRTC 103 - after requisite training and preparation. Note: While all applicants to the WRTC program will be considered for available funding from WRTC, admission to the program does not guarantee funding through WRTC.

Additionally, we have close working relationships with a number of other programs on campus who regularly hire our students for GA positions:

Qualified applicants who have been admitted will have their materials sent directly to these programs for funding consideration.

More information about assistantships is available by visiting The Graduate School page on Assistantships.

Finally, there are many other areas on campus that offer assistantships. Graduate students interested in assistantships should go to JMU JobLink - - to search for available positions.
