Teaching Fellowships & Graduate Assistantships

What are Teaching Fellowships and Graduate Assistantships?

Stern offers teaching fellowship (TF) and graduate assistantship (GA) positions to qualified MBA students. These fellowship positions provide students with an opportunity to add value to the school and to affect change. Moreover, they enable the participant to assist other students attending Stern in both the graduate and undergraduate programs. In order to participate, students must have:

  • Completed at least 9 credits at Stern
  • Be in good academic standing (GPA at least 3.0)
  • Be enrolled in the semester of appointment

Please note that there are many positions, and a selection process by administrators and faculty members may be necessary. For a comprehensive listing of positions as well as detailed information, please visit the Student Jobs website.

How is the tuition assistance applied to my bill?

Each fellowship provides a partial tuition credit for the semester that you are employed and is credited directly to your tuition account. The tuition credit received from fellowship positions is considered financial aid and, most likely, will affect your loan package.

If you receive a position and have loans out for the full budget amount, we will apply the tuition credit directly to your tuition payment and reduce your loans by that amount (i.e. you will not receive a refund check for the fellowship, instead a check for the amount of your fellowship will go directly to the bank to pay down your loan for that semester). Please see below for an illustration:
