• At the start of the assistantship, qualified applicants must have completed a minimum of two semesters of their academic coursework in a master's or post-master's level program.

Applicants must also be enrolled in a graduate or doctoral program throughout the duration of the assistantship.

• Candidates who have completed their degree are not eligible.

• The assistantships are located at The Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

• GAs must make a 9-12 month commitment (beginning in August).

• GAs must make a 20-hours-per-week commitment (during business hours Monday through Friday). The Carter Center offers a stipend of $18.50/hour.
