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.

Beginning in the 2023-2024 academic year, assistantship salaries have been increased, and scholarships will be allocated through a separate process. Scholarship support will no longer be bundled with salary payments for teaching and research assistantship positions. This allows GSAPP to better address student need by offering more opportunities to receive support through direct financial aid.

Full-time master’s students enrolled in the 2023-2024 academic year will now have the opportunity to apply for additional merit-based and need-based scholarships. Applications will be available through the GSAPP Financial Aid Office in June 2023 for disbursements in Fall 2023.


We are pleased to announce GSAPP assistantships for the Fall 2023 semester. Please click on the application link below for a detailed list of available positions. For most categories, multiple assistantships will be given for the Fall semester. Students will be selected and placed in positions based on their skills and experience.

Assistantship applications are due Sunday, June 11, 2023 (11:59pm EDT).

All master’s students who will be registered at GSAPP for 12 or more points per semester in the Fall 2023 semester and all full-time doctoral students will be eligible to apply according to the eligibility criteria outlined for each position. The assignment of assistantships will be made on the basis of qualifications for each position. They are merit-based positions; consequently, preference is given to those who have experience in the course or subject matter. Students are only eligible for one position each semester.

Assistantship holders will be asked to work 12 hours per week, with compensation of $5,800.

Please be reminded that students can only hold one appointed position (i.e. Teaching or Research Assistantship) at a time and may not work more than 20 hours per week total for all jobs at Columbia.


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