Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA)

GRAs support academic research at Nipissing University.  Research assistantship support is administered by Research Services, the School of Graduate Studies and by faculty members who hold research grants or externally funded research contracts.  

All graduate assistantship work is considered to be diversionary from the student's main MRP or Thesis research, and therefore graduate students are limited to a maximum of 10 hours of GTA/GRA work per week while enrolled in a full time program of studies (see The Principle of Timely Completion​ formerly known as "The 10 Hour Rule").  

These payments are considered employment income by the university and tax deductions are made at source.  A T4 will be issued for tax purposes.
