Faculty and Staff

We provide a wealth of tools, resources and information to help faculty and staff promote graduate education at NC State.

Support Services

The Graduate School offers extensive support to NC State faculty and staff who are responsible for graduate programs or who serve as graduate student advisors. Explore our available services below.

Assistantships, Fellowships and Postdocs

Graduate assistantships provide graduate students with the opportunity to combine their studies with valuable work — teaching, research or service — on behalf of their academic department or unit.

Graduate fellowships (or traineeships) provide stipends to graduate students with no corresponding service or employment obligation. Fellowships awarded by academic units are administered through Fellowship Manager Siarra Dickey in the Graduate School. Fellowships awarded through the Graduate School are administered by Todd Marcks.

For more information about assistantships and fellowships, consult the Administrative Handbook, sections 4.1 and 4.2.

As a vital part of NC State’s research enterprise, postdoctoral scholars are served by the university’s dedicated Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.
