  • Only students admitted by March 1, 2013, to the School of Library and Information Science (LIS or IAKM program) will be eligible.

SLIS offers a limited number of graduate assistantships to full-time students (enrolled in eight graduate hours or more per semester for fall and spring and six graduate hours for summer) each year on a competitive basis. This includes students enrolled at Kent, Columbus and online. A graduate assistantship provides full-time students with tuition remission and a stipend in exchange for 20 hours of work per week for 15 weeks. The appointments are typically made for the academic year, beginning with the fall semester, but may also continue through the summer semester.
