The University awards a limited number of graduate assistantships. Positions are posted by department on the Wilkes web site. Applications for these assistantships must be filed with the Department Chairperson/Manager based on the application deadline listed in the posting. The department then reviews the graduate assistantship applications and a recommendation for awarding assistantships is made to the Dean of the respective college or school. Award letters are then sent to the individual or individuals who have been named as graduate assistants.
