Update: Process for Minimum Stipend Increase

Update to the Minimum Stipend Increase

Yesterday, I announced that the minimum stipend for students on appointment as graduate associates has been increased to $15,000 for nine-month, 50 percent appointments beginning fall semester.

The announcement generated questions about how to handle GA appointment documents or communications about stipend levels that have already been made.

You do not have to revise GA appointment documents or stipend levels that have already been communicated.

As the increase will be centrally funded, we will likely be supplementing students below the minimum directly, which would not require you to make changes. Details about the process are still being worked out. Look for further communication from the Graduate School once the process has been determined.
