Janet Waldron Doctoral Research Fellowships
The Janet Waldron Doctoral Research Fellowship (JWDRF) is open to all doctoral students, regardless of discipline and is designed to stimulate research and scholarship at UMaine as measured by research productivity and doctoral-degree graduation rate. Therefore, successful applicants will explicitly address how fellowship support would result in an overall increase in productivity. This JWDRF is intended to provide up to two years (24 months) of support for doctoral students to assist in completion of their degrees; however, support for the second year is contingent upon budget availability and success in meeting productivity goals.
The University of Maine offers teaching, research, and graduate assistantships for eligible students. TAs and RAs are competitive and typically awarded by academic departments. GA positions are either work-study or non-work-study eligible and involve working within offices or departments on campus.
- TAs or teaching assistants are those whose primary responsibilities include teaching
- RAs or research assistants are those whose primary responsibilities are performing research
- GAs or graduate assistants are those whose primary responsibilities are providing other support (not including teaching or research). There are two types of GA positions:
- Workstudy GAs are only open to domestic students who have completed the FAFSA. Federal work-study funding may be available through the Office of Student Employment for graduate students who meet financial and academic qualifications.
- Department funded GAs are open to all graduate students
