The Carter Center Graduate Assistantship Program offers a limited number of funded opportunities for currently enrolled master’s degree and doctoral students. Graduate assistants must make a 9-12 month, 20-hours-per-week commitment and will receive compensation of $14/hour. Please note that these opportunities are based in Atlanta.
In order to be eligible for an assistantship, applicants must be enrolled in a graduate or doctoral program throughout the duration of the assistantship. At the start of the assistantship, qualified applicants must have completed a minimum of two semesters of their academic coursework in a master’s or post-master’s level program. Candidates who will graduate from their master’s, post-master’s, or doctoral-level program before the program ends are not eligible.
*There are no age restrictions or citizenship requirements for graduate assistants.
