Graduate Assistantships

Graduate research and teaching assistantships are available in Chemistry, Biology, and Geoscience to highly prepared graduate students admitted to the Environmental Science & Policy (ES&P) program. All students who apply for the program will be considered for available assistantships; there is no need to apply separately. Students receiving assistantships are expected to devote approximately 20 hours per week performing assigned duties.

Graduate Assistants receive:

  1. A competitive stipend
  2. Out-of-State tuition waiver to in-state rates
  3. Comprehensive health insurance plan.

Assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis by a committee of ES&P faculty. To be eligible for graduate assistantships students must: (a) be fully admitted to the Environmental Science and Policy (ES&P) degree program; (b) be enrolled for a minimum of six credits of course work each semester and no fewer than 15 credits during the entire academic year; and (c) maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average for graduate courses. Additional information regarding specific types of assistantships can be found below.

Graduate Studies Travel Grants

Graduate Studies Travel Grants up to $250.00 per request, and $500 per student per year, are available for graduate students through the Office of Graduate Studies. Although students can request funds regardless of their participation, those presenting posters and papers are given priority. Students may make requests to attend multiple meetings in the same year, within reason, as long as funding requests do not exceed $500 per student per year. Mileage will not be reimbursed for local meetings (within the State of Wisconsin). Students must be enrolled as a degree seeking student within a UW-Green Bay graduate program to apply. All requests must first be approved by a graduate faculty sponsor from the student's program of study prior to review by the Graduate Studies Office.

Applications must be received 30 days prior to the meeting start date, but applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to facilitate the direct payment of costs associated with meeting attendance.

Graduate Studies Research Grants

Grants up to $1,000.00 are available for UW-Green Bay, degree-seeking graduate students to support activities contributing to the enhancement and completion of graduate projects and thesis. Awarded funds can be used for travel to and from research sites, for research supplies and equipment, or as honoraria for human subjects. Research grants will not support travel to meetings, tuition and general educational expenses, standard equipment expected of departments, researcher salaries or stipends, or publication costs. Awards are limited to one per student. Application deadlines for fall-semester submissions is January 31 and April 30 for spring-semester submissions. Late proposals will not be considered.
