Columbia GSAPP offers a limited number of teaching and research assistantships to students enrolled in full-time degree programs and to continuing non-enrolled students. Remuneration is based on the expected workload and is disbursed via semimonthly paychecks. An enrolled student receiving an assistantship will also be granted a tuition award, which is applied directly to the student’s account.

The application window for Spring 2022 assistantships has closed. Students were notified of their candidacy in December.

The assignment of assistantships is made on the basis of qualifications for each position. Because these are merit-based positions, preference is given to applicants who have experience in the course or subject matter. Students are only eligible for one position per semester.

Remuneration varies based on the position and falls within three ranges:

  • 10 hours per week: $8,144 tuition award plus $2,320 salary
  • 15 hours per week: $12,216 tuition award plus $3,480 salary
  • 19 hours per week: $15,270 tuition award plus $4,410 salary

Please be reminded that students may not work more than a maximum of 20 hours per week total during academic periods, including any assistantships and/or hourly positions held at the University.

Questions/inquiries should be directed to the Dean’s Office: assistantships@arch.columbia.edu.
