Assistantships and Work-Study

Undergraduate Work-Study

ESF participates in the Federal Work-Study Program in order to offer part-time employment opportunities to eligible students. In addition to helping the students defray the costs of higher education, FWS also provides a valuable workforce for the college community.

Undergraduate Research Assistantships

Undergraduate research assistantships are periodically available to students with advanced skills. Generally, faculty seeking assistants will circulate an announcement, or students showing exceptional potential may be asked to join a research or service project. In addition to individual faculty work, the Centers for Community Design Research, Cultural Landscape Preservation, or Urban Environments may also offer assistantships or Undergraduate Work Study opportunities.

Graduate Assistantships

Students with associated professional degrees may be considered for a graduate assistantship (stipend and tuition scholarship) upon admission, depending upon qualifications and portfolio. Other students may apply for landscape architecture graduate assistantships after the first year of the first professional degree track. Assistantships may also be available with community service or research projects and are awarded by individual faculty to students with the necessary qualifications.

A limited number of teaching assistantships is awarded each year to highly qualified candidates seeking an academic career. Individuals with prior landscape architectural work experience who intend to pursue a career in teaching at the university level are encouraged to discuss their options with the graduate program coordinator in the Department of Landscape Architecture.
