Dear Mr. Kemble:
I am pleased to learn that you have accepted our offer of admission to the graduate program of the Department of History of Art at The Ohio State University. The Graduate Studies Committee was impressed with your application and is pleased to offer you financial support in the form of a Graduate Associateship (GTA or GAA) for the 2009-2010 academic year. The GTA appointments include teaching, grading, and other instructional and administrative assignments related to the History of Art. GAA appointees are typically assigned to either the Visual Resources Library or the History of Art Department office. All Graduate Associates are expected to work an average of 20 hours per week, and they receive a fee authorization, covering full tuition and instructional fees, as well as a monthly stipend for each quarter on appointment. The monthly stipend for beginning TAs next year will be at least $1300.00.
Providing that you make adequate progress toward your degree, we will continue to fund you for a minimum of five years.
The Graduate Studies Committee and the department are very pleased to be able to offer this financial support to you, and look forward very much to seeing you in Columbus in the fall. Please let me know if you have any questions.
With all best wishes.
Julia F. Andrews
Chair, Graduate Studies Committee
