Graduate Teaching/Research Assistantships

Bodenheimer Fellowship Awardees

Revised September 2023.


No service is required of a recipient of a Bodenheimer Fellowship. Once awarded, the student just needs to be enrolled as a full-time student in EECS. The minimum load is determined by the required hours of work for the assistantship. For a ¼-time assistantship, 9 hours during a Fall or Spring semester is the minimum course load. For a ½-time assistantship, 6 hours during a Fall or Spring semester is the minimum course load.

A recipient is generally also offered a choice of the following:

(1) a 1/4-time teaching assistantship in return for working 10 hours per week with a monthly stipend of $808.42 with tuition and health insurance paid.

(2) a 1/2-time research assistantship in return for working 20 hours per week with a monthly stipend of $2,155.67 (or higher) with tuition and health insurance paid.

(3) a combination of 1/4-time teaching and 1/4-time research assistantships in return for working 20 hours per week with a monthly stipend of $1,886.25 (or higher) with tuition and health insurance paid.
