Burgos Language and Liberal Arts Program
Boston University Study Abroad (BUSA), in cooperation with the BU Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, department of Romance Studies, is offering a graduate assistantship in the Burgos Language and Liberal Arts Program to Boston University students enrolled in a graduate PhD program. BUSA graduate assistantships are intended to provide off-campus work experience to BU graduate students. BUSA graduate assistantships are coordinated through BUSA and can encompass a variety of responsibilities and opportunities on a BUSA site.
This graduate assistantship in Burgos is only available for graduate students in the CAS Department of Romance Studies. All graduate assistantship applicants must be Boston University graduate students in good academic standing and with demonstrated experience in their fields and fluency in Spanish. Students with pending incompletes will not be considered. BU graduate students who have been awarded a Graduate Research Abroad Fellowship through the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and the Humanities Foundation are not eligible for a BUSA graduate assistantship.
Preference will be given to those students who are up-to-date with their academic requirements, particularly those who have passed their comprehensive examination. Priority will be given to students who have not previously served as a graduate assistant off-campus. If two or more candidates have similar qualifications, seniority will be considered.
The graduate assistant duties comprise administrative support, academic support for undergraduate students, and faculty or staff support. The graduate assistant will be responsible for the BU office at the University of Burgos and serve as a contact and resource for students. The graduate assistant will work no more than 20 (twenty) hours per week.
The graduate assistantship package for this program includes:
- Stipend: $1,500 per month
- Housing allowance: $500 per month
- Round/trip airfare from home city to program site based on dates of assistantship
- Continuing Student Fee

Applicants must submit a c.v. and statement of interest to Monika Skrobisz-Gil, International Personnel Coordinator, BU Study Abroad (email@example.com). In their written statement, applicants should clearly explain why they are applying for the position and how working on-site would contribute to their academic and career goals, as well as personal goals.
Primary consideration will be given to applications received by June 30, 2011. Thereafter, open until filled.
