SOE Graduate Assistantship Application for 2017-2018
This application is for graduate assistantships available to students in VCU School of Education doctoral degree programs. It does not replace the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), nor is there any exchange of information between the VCU School of Education and the VCU Office of Financial Aid.

Students are strongly discouraged from holding any additional employment while having a Graduate Assistantship, and must have the permission of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs to do so. Priority will be given to students who have a minimum 150 on both the GRE Verbal and GRE quantitative tests.
Step 1: Fill Out the Application Form Completely, including the essay. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
