GSI and Reader Application 2018-2019 for History Graduate Students Only

Due Date: March 29, 2018 (noon)

All applicants should fill out the form completely.  Note that all fields marked by a red asterisk (*) are mandatory and you will not be able to submit the form without filling in the requested data.  Note: this application is only for History Graduate Students.  

History Graduate Students who have a department obligation in 2018-2019 from their funding package are required to submit an application to receive their funding and will be notified of their appointments by the end of May.  For all others, appointment letters will be emailed on a rolling basis as positions become available up through the start of the semester in question.  Readerships are not finalized until course enrollment justifies the assignment.  If you receive a Reader or GSI appointment you will be contacted by Campus Shared Services, who will notify you of when and where to complete payroll paperwork.  Note that the University restricts students to a 50%-time appointment each semester (unless a fellowship award further restricts employment eligibility).  Any combination of appointments that brings the percent time above 50%-time for the semester requires the written approval of the Director of Graduate Studies in advance of the start date of the appointments. In general, due to F and J visa restrictions, international students are limited to a maximum of 50%-time appointment per semester.

Please read the History Department Reader Policy and the Berkeley Graduate Division Appointments handbook for further information.  If you have any questions about the application please contact Todd Kuebler at
