Teaching assistantships (TAs), research assistantships (RAs), graduate assistantships (GAs), fellowships, and scholarships are academic awards made by the university, by individual academic departments, and by the Dean’s Office. Several graduate assistantships unrelated to a particular area of study can be obtained by applying to administrative offices. See colleges and departments directory.
TE student teams are eligible for seed funding and access to Lehigh’s extensive laboratory and shop resources to help develop their ideas. Each summer the cohort of enrolled students is encouraged to form teams, develop their product idea and by the end of the summer session, apply for seed funding that is available to support the development of the best product/company ideas. This competition is only open to students enrolled in the TE degree program. In addition, each team will be mentored by the TE faculty to help them start and grow their company, employing the resource of over 50 programs and organizations that are part of Lehigh’s entrepreneurship ecosystem.
