Graduate Assistantships

The School of Social Work posts for Graduate Assistantships prior to the start of each academic term - Fall, Winter, and Intersession/Summer. 

Applications are accepted no later than the departmental deadline date set for each term. 

Applications are open to currently registered full-time graduate students in the School of Social Work. Graduate students must maintain full-time registration throughout the term, and must be in good standing in order to hold a Graduate Assistantship.  Please refer to Articles 12, 13 and 14 of the CUPE 4580 Collective Agreement for full eligibility details.

Graduate Assistants must apply each term by the application deadline, in accordance with Article 13:

"With respect to those students who have applied for and been accepted for Assistantships, the Assistant will not be paid for any shortfall of hours at the end of their respective program, provided the University has satisfied its obligation to post available positions each term in writing and on the AAU website and to offer the minimum terms of support in accordance with Article 13:01 (a) & (b) and provided that the Assistant has applied in writing or via e-mail by the application deadline for each term until they have received the minimum terms of support in accordance with Article 13:01 (a) & (b)."
