Graduate Funding

Students enrolled in the MA and MAA graduate programs have several funding opportunities available to them.

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships provide financial assistance to degree-seeking graduate students through a mentored university employment experience. As a Graduate Assistant, students participate in work obligations and educational and developmental activities.

Graduate Assistantships Include:

  • Work obligation – work for the university is assigned by the supervisor and the student receives compensation in the form of a salary.
  • Tuition and Fees – the assistantship includes payment of resident tuition and fees (non-resident fees are waived).
  • Health Insurance – the assistantship covers full payment of the Boise State GA Group employee health insurance plan.

See Policy 7170 for a complete description of the Graduate Assistantship policy.
