1) Course Qualification Guidelines:
To qualify, the courses must be WID approved (i.e. a "W" is attached to the course code) and enroll a minimum of 20 students, per the course-cap.
Advanced graduate students teaching a WID course are not eligible for a GA.
Individual courses may NOT receive support from both a WID GA and Peer-Writing Preceptor (PWP) simultaneously.
Courses can be seated or online, so long as they are WID-approved.
2) WID GA Eligibility:
- Currently pursuing a graduate degree from GWU, either part-time or full-time
- Does NOT hold other GA appointments in their home and/or other academic departments (addendum: GAs may hold multiple WID GA assignments)
- Does NOT hold a secondary waged position, on or off campus
- Is NOT funded through departmental packaged grants, scholarships, or stipends
- International Students with F1 Visa statuses are eligible to work as a WID GA
- Must be in good standing with their respective programs; Directors of Graduate Studies (DGS) or Program Directors may authorize the GA appointment
3) Request Deadlines:
Summer GA requests must be submitted by March 1st.
Fall GA requests must be submitted by April 1st.
Spring GA requests must be submitted by October 1st.
* Requests beyond the term deadlines will not be considered for WID GA support
* Please note that the professor will be responsible for supplying the GA with an office space if office hours are required
* WID matches GAs based on availability; not every request is guaranteed a pairing
* Faculty are encouraged to reach out within their own departments for eligible GAs and submit them for consideration
* Salary and hours per week start at $1,200 for the semester at approximately 5-7 hours/week and increase incrementally with enrollment to $3,800 for the semester--not to exceed 20 hours/week.
