We have the two standard sorts of assistantships for graduate students,
the Teaching Assistant and the Research Assistant, plus the possibility of a
Bucy Scholarship in Applied Physics. The low
cost of living in Lubbock, when compared to the settings of other
Universities in the region, makes the compensation packages for our
assistantships especially attractive.
This is typically the kind of support offered to
incoming students. It carries a stipend of $1665/month for 9 months for
students entering with a B.S., or $1756/month for students entering with an
M.S. Summer support is available on a competitive basis. International
students must pass the International TA Workshop
for details) in order to be supported as a
Teaching Assistant. Duties include teaching 2-hour introductory physics or
astronomy laboratories three times a week, grading, and holding office
A student wishing to enter with support as a Research
Assistant should contact directly the faculty member with whom they would
like to work. In extraordinary circumstances, the student and faculty may
agree that the student will be supported with a RA. Generally, RA support
is not offered before a student has made a committment to perform research
under the advisement of a particular faculty member. The stipends are
comparable to those of TAs, but generally run for 12 months.
