Graduate Student Research Assistantships

The Graduate Student Research Assistantship (GSRA) program at the University of Michigan-Flint is a vehicle to provide financial support for the academically-related research activities of active UM-Flint graduate students. A GSRA is an appointment which may be provided to a student in good standing in a UM-Flint graduate degree program who performs personal research (including thesis and dissertation preparation) or who assists UM-Flint faculty performing research that is relevant to his or her academic goals. Appointments to the GSRA program at UM-Flint are made for one or two semesters/terms and are contingent upon the recommendation of an academic department or program and the approval of the Dean of Graduate Programs.

Guidelines for the GSRA program can be accessed at UM-Flint GSRA Guidelines.
