A permanent raise in graduate assistantship compensation begins in 2024-2025.

UNC Charlotte is raising the pay for students on graduate assistantships beginning in the 2024-2025 academic year.

This change will incorporate the previous $1,000 scholarship that GASP-eligible doctoral students received and increase the overall level of funding going forward.

Stipends for graduate students on assistantships will be increased, based on student eligibility and prorated based on a 20-hour per week assistantship, as follows: 

  • $1,500 to doctoral students on an assistantship and
  • $250 to master’s students on an assistantship.

Doctoral students eligible for GASP:

  • Hold a teaching or research assistantship,
  • Are enrolled full-time (nine hours or more OR enrolled in GRAD 9800) and 
  • Are enrolled within ten semesters (eight semesters for Advanced Standing students) of the term of admission.
