    We are currently anticipating 2 possibly 3 new graduate assistantship openings for doctoral students to begin in the 2023-2024 school year. These Sport Management graduate assistantships carry a competitive monthly stipend of $23,000 over 9 months and a full tuition waiver. Additional financial incentives/bonuses at $16,000 or more are potentially available for candidates with an outstanding GRE or GMAT score, high cumulative GPA, and/or from underserved populations. We encourage your students to ask about these as well!

    It should also be noted that several past applicants and doctoral students with LSU Sport Management received university-level fellowships prior to admission and/or been offered university-level dissertation fellowships to complete their coursework. Further, we guarantee other benefits like at least $1,000 annually for travel to conferences.

    Lastly, all former doctoral graduates of our program were successful in receiving tenure-track appointments as their initial job opportunity. Moreover, all of our doctoral graduates secured multiple peer-reviewed publications and presentations prior to graduation.

    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 and ample teaching experience as lead instructor prior to hitting the job market.

    The deadline for a graduate assistantship at LSU is March 15, 2024; however, we are looking to cultivate relationships with prospective applicants immediately not only through our Virtual Open House but also other correspondence students may wish to create.

    To facilitate a positive recruiting experience, students interested in our PhD opportunity and graduate assistantships at LSU are encouraged to contact individual faculty members regarding their research fit as a potential advisor, especially if they cannot make our Virtual Open House. Current faculty potentially accepting students at LSU Sport Management include: Claire Zvosec, Tyreal Qian, Mike Martinez, Chad Seifried, and Per Svensson.
