The Grims Athletic Scholarship (GAS) provides full course tuition support in a selected number of popular graduate programs and a seven meal plan over a two year period for a graduate assistant working in the Athletic Department. To be eligible for this program, the student must meet the admission requirements for and be accepted to the graduate program and must commit to a two year graduate assistantship. GAS students will work with the Athletic Director, or their designee, to layout the overall two year course sequence plan (the Plan) for that graduate program. Students who get terminated from the graduate assistantship may lose their GAS; students who choose to accelerate their study lose the GAS for courses taken beyond the Plan. Courses taken beyond the Plan will be charged at current tuition price. Students who change graduate programs may lose their GAS as it pertains to course tuition. Students who do not maintain minimum academic standards may lose their GAS. Once a student is accepted into a graduate program and receives notification of a GAS for that program, the Plan can be developed. The meal plan is available only during traditional underrate residential semesters.
Please remember that we want to identify and hire aspiring coaches and the expectation is that all GA’s will spend considerable time during the week in the office assisting the coaching staff, as well as out on the road recruiting.
