A Graduate Assistantship (GA) is an offer of funding in exchange for some work commitment on the part of the student. Assistantships vary in size, but often cover tuition, fees, and health insurance, and pay an additional living stipend. In exchange, students are expected to undertake teaching, research, or administrative duties in their academic department.
A scholarship is also an offer of funding from the university, but comes with no work requirements.
