Graduate Assistantships

Announcement: The Carter Center is Offering a Limited Number of Funded Graduate Assistantships (PDF) >

The Carter Center Graduate Assistantship Program offers a limited number of funded opportunities for currently enrolled master's degree and doctoral students. Graduate assistants must make a 9-12 month, 20-hours-per-week commitment and will receive compensation of $14/hour.

In order to be eligible for an assistantship, applicants must be enrolled in a graduate or doctoral program throughout the duration of the assistantship. Candidates who will graduate from their master's, post-master's, or doctoral-level program before the program ends are not eligible.

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