Job Description

Lock Haven University Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer

In Conjunction with Drayer Physical Therapy Institute AT Mentoring Program

LHU Position Description Summary:

Graduate Assistantships at Lock Haven University provide students with a variety of opportunities for scholarly and professional development designed first and foremost to reinforce and enhance their scholarly pursuits, while providing financial assistance for students in attaining their educational goals. Graduate assistantships give students an opportunity to gain practical experience in teaching, research, academic or administrative service under the guidance of a faculty or staff member. Graduate Assistantships are integral to the students’ program of study and to the transformation of a student into a professional scholar. They also advance the University mission to recruit highly qualified students to our graduate programs in greater numbers.

 

These positions are 9-month appointments that begin in early August. Each graduate assistant will be paid a stipend of approximately $5,550. Additional hourly stipends may be paid for preseason medical care.

These positions include a tuition waiver for the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 semesters. Completion of many graduate programs, however, will require additional classes to be taken in the Summer I/II 2020 sessions, which are not covered by the tuition waiver. Additional information about LHU graduate programs may be found here: www.lockhaven.edu/academics/graduate.html. Additional student fees associated with each program may be required.
