|The School of Kinesiology at the Louisiana State University (LSU) is currently anticipating 1-2 new graduate assistantship openings for doctoral students to begin in the 2018-2019 school year. These Sport Management graduate assistantships carry a competitive monthly stipend and a full tuition waiver. Additional financial incentives are potentially available for candidates with an outstanding GRE or GMAT score and high cumulative undergraduate and masters GPA. It should be noted that past applicants and current doctoral students with LSU Sport Management have received university-level fellowships prior to admission and been offered university-level dissertation fellowships to complete their coursework. Further benefits include access to paid travel to conferences for presentations and use of personal computers, among other incentives.
In exchange for these benefits, graduate assistants at LSU will be expected to teach 2 lecture classes each semester within our B.S. program in Sport Administration, giving each graduate of LSU real teaching experience. The deadline to be considered for a graduate assistantship is March 15, 2018; however, a review of applications is ongoing.
Students interested in the doctoral opportunity and graduate assistantships at LSU are encouraged to contact individual faculty members regarding their research fit as a potential advisor. Current faculty potentially accepting students at LSU Sport Management include: Kwame Agyemang, Damon Andrew, Chris Barnhill, Mike Martinez, Chad Seifried, and Per Svensson. The faculty at LSU are published in a variety of top academic journals and active presenting at conferences (see attachment). For more information on the individual faculty and to review their CVs here.
Finally, students interested in the doctoral opportunity and graduate assistantships are also encouraged and welcomed to attend our open house we are planning for Spring 2018 (February 23rd – see attachments).
