Fellowships Combined with Assistantships

While receiving full-academic year Graduate School fellowships (DDF, DGSF) or full- year AOP fellowships, students are eligible to work an additional amount on campus not to exceed:

  • A maximum of 37.5 percent as a Teaching, Research or Project Assistant.
  • Up to 15 hours per week in student hourly or outside employment.

Requests for Exception to work in excess of these maximums must be submitted to the Graduate School at least two weeks prior to the start of employment. Any exceptions to the limits on concurrent employment while receiving a fellowship will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Students’ financial hardship, professional development needs, and satisfactory academic progress will be the main criteria in considering exceptions to this policy. The needs of programs for staffing will not be grounds for approving exceptions to the maximum limits on concurrent employment.
