An assistantship is an award granted to students who assist professors with their research or teaching responsibilities. Assistants are paid a stipend in exchange for the tasks they perform for the department. Responsibilities could include teaching labs, grading papers, research, writing and other administrative tasks. Assistantships look great on resumes as they offer valuable teaching and/or researching opportunities as well as a chance to work closely with individual professors.
