Graduate Research Assistants
Salaries for Graduate Research Assistants/Fellows (i.e., graduate students performing research) should be budgeted for based on the VPAA Graduate Student Pay Schedule published on UNT’s VPAA website. Graduate Research Assistants are encouraged. The budget should include:
- Graduate Research Assistantship—support in an amount directly proportional to the amount of necessary work the student performs on the project
- Tuition—for graduate students supported on sponsored research grants and contracts, the proposal budget should include the cost of tuition in an amount proportionate to the amount of compensation (GRA support described above)
Tuition remission is the payment of tuition expense as part of the compensation to students performing necessary work on a sponsored project. If the student is working on more than one project, salary/support and tuition must be paid by each project in an amount commensurate with the work being performed on that project.
