Financial Support for Health Informatics and Bioinformatics M.S.

Ways to finance your education:

Graduate Assistantships

There are a limited number of Graduate Assistantships (GAs) available at the school and the University. They are part-time, paid work experiences for graduates in their field of study, which allows them to expand and/or apply their discipline knowledge and skills under supervision. Tuition is also paid based on requirements of number of hours worked and course credits being taken per semester.

Find Jobs - Handshake

You can find Graduate Assistantships or other campus jobs at the Handshake website. You need to be accepted to the Health Informatics and Bioinformatics Program in order to apply, i.e., you need a GVSU login or G-Number (see guide on the Handshake webpage). If you are asked for a reference, please contact your instructor or the program director, Dr. Guenter Tusch.

We expect our graduate assistants to be hard working and an example for other students. To be graduate assistant is a privilege that typically is earned by good grades and ethical behavior. This is not a stipend. You are expected to put in the work that is requested. A graduate assistantship can be terminated any time.
