EXTERNAL GRA INSTRUCTIONS
Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs) can be set up by any faculty member with outside organizations. The assistantship must be a minimum of $2000 per semester to the student in order to qualify as a GRA which includes a full tuition waiver. Fringe Benefits and Facilities & Administration fees are calculated in addition to this minimum amount in order to determine the Total sponsor Financial Commitment. (See below Calculation Table.)
Assistantships begin at 8 hours per week for a $2000 stipend. The organization can have the student work up to 20 hours a week if the student does not have another GRA. Students may not work over 20 hours a week total for all assistantships, and this also includes CPT for international students in their second year. If the organization wants the student to work above the minimum hours, the student’s stipend should reflect the additional work hours. It is considerate to also include travel time to and from the assistantship in their total work hours but is not a requirement.
Faculty members who initiate a GRA between a GSU student and an external organization will be the faculty contact. The faculty contact is responsible for acquiring and providing all required information for the GRA contract by completing and submitting the External Assistantship form located on the Faculty Resources website. The faculty contact may use the provided Calculation Table to determine the total costs to the outside organization.
The contract’s performance dates are typically 10-months, and are the start and end dates of the student’s service to the organization. The performance dates must coincide with the first and last days of classes during the semesters in which the assistantship has been contracted, e.g., August 22, 2022 to April 30, 2024. To determine the start and end date, please refer to the Academic Calendar: https://registrar.gsu.edu/registration/semester-calendars-exam-schedules/
If summer work is desired, 12-month contracts may only be issued if the student is not graduating and will be returning for an additional year of their degree program. All contracts will end when the student graduates from GSU. If the organization wishes for the student to work past their graduation date, the sponsoring organization must hire the student independently.
All contract dates align with GSU’s fiscal year beginning July 1 and ending June 30, and is separate from the performance dates which specifies when the student will be working for the sponsoring organization.
List of Duties
The External Assistantship form requires a document that lists the days and hours per week the student will work, along with a list of duties. For example:
The duties of this position are to provide 10 hours of assistance per week to SPONSORING ORGANIZATION (including travel time), under the supervision of FACULTY CONTACT and SPONSOR CONTACT. This assignment will include the following duties.
- Direct a choir
- Lead sectionals
- Organize the music library
- Sing in the choir
Service to the School of Music
For all external assistantships, service to the School of Music must be included in the student’s contract. For example:
In addition to the responsibilities with the above organization, the graduate assistant will assist (sing and/or conduct) with Treble Choir and/or Tenor/Bass Choir and Choral Union each semester. Additional duties include regularly assisting and/or leading activities within the choral area and the School of Music. These activities may include (but are not limited to) planning and executing recruitment events, leading sectionals and full rehearsals, assisting with concerts, maintaining electronic records (such as attendance), and organizing and filing music in the choral library.
Processing the GRA Agreements
Once the External Assistantship form has been submitted, an email will be sent to the faculty contact, the sponsor contact, the SOM business manager, and the SOM graduate director. The graduate director will then create a contract and the business manager will create a budget. The contract and budget proposal will be submitted to the Office of Research and Sponsored Projects (OSPA). OSPA will send out the contract to the organization for signature. Once the contract has been signed, the graduate director will send a graduate assistantship offer to the student.
Renewing External GRAs
To begin the renewal process, the faculty contact must submit the External Assistantship form and indicate Existing Agreement Renewal. Since the fringe fee can change every fiscal year, the faculty contact should use the provided Calculation Table to determine the total cost to the sponsoring organization.
For all renewals, the contract date of the renewal will begin the day after the previous contract ends. This keeps the assistantship line open, even though the next student will not provide any services to the organization until the beginning of the subsequent semester.
The External Assistantship form must be completed by the deadlines provided below to create new assistantships.
- Jan. 15th for Fall awards (to be awarded in March)
- Sept. 1 for Spring awards (to be awarded in November)
Renewals must be initiated by the deadlines provided below.
- Oct. 31 for Spring end dates
- Mar. 31 for Fall end dates
