University policy allows that students supported by a full fellowship like the SGF may be employed for an additional eight hours of hourly employment or may hold a supplemental teaching appointment (e.g. TA, CA) or research appointment (RA) from a minimum of 4 hours to a maximum of 10 hours a week.
If a student has a combination of hourly work and a supplemental teaching or research appointment, the total commitment may not exceed 8 hours per week.
As explained in GAP 7.2:
A "full fellowship" is defined as one that provides the same amount of support as a 50% FTE assistantship, at the minimum salary level established by Stanford University and providing the equivalent level of tuition support. Because full fellowships are intended to enable students to work exclusively on their studies, concurrent hourly employment is limited to eight hours per week. Students on full fellowships may hold a concurrent research or teaching assistantship appointment up to a maximum of 25% with no additional hourly employment.
Individual departments and programs may establish more specific eligibility requirements for the fellowship programs that they manage.
For supplemental RAs, the SGF fellowship provides its usual levels of stipend and tuition support; tuition allowance (TAL) from the supplemental RA is not needed. For supplemental Teaching appointments (e.g. TA, CA) the SGF fellowship provides the usual level of stipend support; the tuition allowance (TAL) from the supplemental TA is used, and the tuition from the SGF is reduced.
Summer quarter supplemental RA appointments: The maximum is increased from 10 to 20 hours a week. Fellows enroll in eight, nine, or ten units (or TGR, if eligible), as provided by the SGF.
