Graduate Assistantships and scholarships

The M.L.A program offers a number of Graduate Assistantships (GA) and Scholarships to highly qualified applicants with strong English abilities.

~40%                 of our students currently receive scholarships ranging from 15K to 1.5K

~60%                 of our students are currently employed in Graduate Assistantships–both Research Assistantship and Teaching Assistantship

In 2016-2017, a new student on quarter time assistantship (10 hrs a week) receives a stipend of $950 per month for 9 months. Renewed appointments generally include salary increase.

In addition, a graduate assistant’s tuition is reduced to the level of resident tuition. Half of that tuition is covered by a tuition scholarship. In 2016-2017 this amounts to $2,093 per semester.
