Employment Opportunities

Federal Work Study (FWS)

FWS is a need based student employment program that provides jobs for eligible undergraduate and graduate students. This is a program whereby a federal contribution is matched by Tarleton. Employment can be on-campus or off campus with departments or agencies that typically serve the public interest, most of which are non-profit. Students earn at least federal minimum wage.

Texas College Work Study Program (TCWSP)

Very similar to FWS with the exception that the state provides the matching funds.

Intern 2 Learn

Participants work as interns for faculty and staff in areas related to their respective academic programs.  Once the students gain valuable experience they may be given more responsibility and qualify for pay increases. This program is designed to provide relevant work experience and qualifies as  R.E.A.L. (Real World Experience Applied to Learning) internships.

Learn more about our Intern 2 Learn Program.

Graduate Assistantships

Assistantships for graduate students are available in most academic departments that offer a master's program as well as other university support areas. Most assistantships require teaching, laboratory instruction or research. The awarding of assistantships is considered as a staffing function of the department making the appointment. Inquiries about applications should be addressed to the head of the department in which the applicant wishes to study.

Applications for such positions must satisfy both the Graduate School and department requirements. Academic excellence and maturity are the primary qualifications.

To check on available G.A. positions, visit Hire A Texan or the Career Services office on the second floor of the Barry B. Thompson Student Center.
