2019-20 Graduate Associate Stipend

The stipend for the 2019-20 academic year will be $17,280 for nine-month, 50 percent GA appointments ($1,920/month). This increase was originally announced alongside last year's GA stipend increase on April 23, 2018.

These stipend increases were recommended by the Graduate Compensation and Benefits Committee (GCBC). The increases help us advance Ohio State’s goal of providing nationally competitive compensation and benefits to our graduate associates while recognizing the contribution of their efforts to our teaching and research enterprise. We believe this decision reflects Ohio State’s obligation as a leading public, urban, land‐grant research university.

Many graduate programs already invest beyond the minimum stipend amounts required, and I encourage all programs to aim to reach the median stipend level of benchmark peers in their discipline. Doing so is an important part of attracting and retaining excellent and diverse graduate students.
