Funding and Employment Opportunities

In addition to financial aid in the form of grants, loans, work-study and scholarships, prospective and current graduate students may be eligible to apply for various graduate employment opportunities on campus. Examples of positions include Gradaute Assistant, Graduate Coordinator, Resident Director, Research Fellow, or Teaching Fellow. These positions are funded and hired by the academic and administrative units, therefore compensation packages vary based on the nature of the job responsibilities and available funds. Rowan University adheres to the Council on Graduate School’s “April 15th Resolution” found here.

All graduate student employees and hiring supervisors are expected to be familiar with the Graduate Student Employee Handbook.
