Maroon and White Graduate Assistantships--Incoming PhD. Students
Aided by a grant from the graduate school, Mississippi State History is pleased to offer a series of special competitive graduate assistantships for new students enrolling in August 2023. Each is named after a retired history faculty member. There are two types of assistantships for the coming academic year. Mississippi State’s two colors—maroon and white—differentiate the two awards. Both require recipients to be teaching assistants. Duties may include working as an editorial assistant for ISIS, the journal of the History of Science Society, for Environmental History, the journal of the American Society for Environmental History and of the Forest History Society, for War in History or Early American Studies, published in conjunction with the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, University of Pennsylvania.
The Maroon extends through the academic year and provides at least $20,000 during that period. The White is for the academic year and the following summer. It pays at least $26,000. As do all our teaching assistantships, special and regular, these come with full tuition and fees paid by the university.
Decisions about these special assistantships will be made before the end of March.
