Assistantships and work studies must be sought out by the student. You are welcome to look on Columbia’s Human Resources page for part-time, on-campus positions. Some are research-oriented; others are purely administrative. These are hourly positions and generally do not come with tuition benefits. The School of Engineering also posts research opportunities on the Student Research Program site.
Most assistantships are typically posted closer to the beginning of each semester. Please note that most fully-funded positions are typically reserved for Ph.D. track students. Paid opportunities on-campus are typically hourly positions and do not come with tuition benefits. While these positions do not cover the cost of tuition, it can offset the cost of attendance.
Additionally, DSI students have an opportunity for on-campus, part-time work through two DSI programs:
DSI Campus Connections Program: We are able to connect our students with Columbia faculty and staff that need students with data science skills. Some of the positions are paid, while others may have the option to be used for credit.
DSI Scholars Program: This program engages Columbia’s undergraduate and master’s degree students in data science research with Columbia faculty, provides student researchers with unique enrichment activities, and aims to foster a learning and collaborative community in data science at Columbia. The opportunity includes a stipend.
