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.

We are pleased to announce GSAPP assistantships for the 2019-2020 academic year. 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 and/or Spring semesters; the number of available positions and semester(s) offered are listed in the application. Students will be selected and placed in positions based on their skills and experience. The salary will be commensurate with the level of responsibility of the position, but the minimum GSAPP teaching assistantship award is $10,184 per semester ($7,864 tuition award plus salary of $2,320). The number of hours an assistantship holder will be asked to work is, at a minimum, 10 hours per week.

Assistantship applications are due Sunday, June 23rd (midnight).

All students who will be registered at GSAPP for 12 or more points per semester in the 2019-2020 year are eligible to apply. 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.

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


There are also hourly administrative positions available for students at the School via the casual payroll. These are posted alongside other opportunities on the Career Services at GSAPP page.
