Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

The Center for Latin American Studies awards a limited number of Graduate Assistantships to students
in the M.A. program in Latin American Studies (MALAS). Typically, an
assistantship is assigned for both Fall and Spring semesters. The
assistantship provides a stipend of $12,500 total for the two semesters
and covers the cost of 9 graduate
credits of tuition per semester. In return, each assistant is required
to work 13 hours per week for the Center for Latin American Studies.

Awards are made on an annual basis. Renewal for a second year of support is contingent upon the student’s academic performance
and the supervisor’s evaluation of job performance. Renewals are also
contingent upon the availability of funds. Funding decisions are made
