Morehead State University Graduate Assistantship Program
A number of graduate assistantships are available each year for graduate students who have been admitted unconditionally to a graduate degree program. These graduate assistantships provide a $10,000 per year ($5,000 per semester) stipend for the fall and spring semesters. The stipend is disbursed in bimonthly increments on the 15th and 30th. A graduate assistant must be a full-time student who maintains a 3.0 cumulative GPA and registers for and completes at least nine (9) graduate credit hours (600 level) but no more than 13 credit hours each semester. Twenty hours (20) a week must be devoted to the duties of a full assistantship. While nonresident students are not required to pay out-of-state tuition, all recipients must pay the regular Kentucky resident and incidental fees as the GA award does not cover these expenses.
