Graduate Assistantships: Summer Session Only

The Carter Center Graduate Assistant Program offers a limited number of opportunities to students currently enrolled in a master's level program.  Graduate assistants must make a 10-week, 40-hour-per-week commitment and receive a stipend of $3,500.


In order to be eligible for an assistantship, applicants must have completed at least two semesters of their academic coursework in a master's or post-master's level program, or currently be enrolled in a doctoral-level program. Candidates who have graduated from either program are not eligible.

*There are no age restrictions or citizenship requirements for graduate assistants.

Please note that you may apply for the Graduate Assistantship Program in two ways:

  1. Apply and be considered for a graduate assistantship only.

  2. Apply and be considered for a graduate assistantship and internship; should you not be selected as a graduate assistant, you are still under consideration for an internship in the programs of your choice.

Program Areas:

China Program

Conflict Resolution Program
