To be considered for this scholarship, candidates must have earned a cumulative 3.5 GPA or higher in their undergraduate degree. The scholarship amounts vary depending on residency status and cumulative GPA. For residents, the scholarship range is $2,500 – $7,500. For non-residents, the scholarship range is $7,500 – $19,000.

To be considered for this scholarship, candidates must have accepted their financial aid offer. The scholarship amount will vary based on need. Please know that we do not award full-ride scholarships. Students who qualify for a need-based scholarship must complete a need-based scholarship application.

To be considered you must have earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Utah. The 10% calculation is based on two semesters of full-time course work or 9 credits per term. We factor in residency and non-residency tuition rates.

  • Must be formally accepted into the MRED and MSF programs.
  • Must have and maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA.
  • Both residents and non-residents are eligible for up to *$10,000.

*If a candidate decides to pursue the MRED-MSF while in one of the programs and received an admissions scholarship, the admissions scholarship will be deducted from the $10,000 concurrent scholarship and the amount remaining will be awarded for the second program.

At the start of Fall or Spring semester we will email all active MRED students the graduate assistantship job description for an opportunity to apply for the position. The purpose of this position is to assist the MRED admissions team on admissions processes and various projects.

Graduate assistants are permitted to work 7 to 10 hours per week at $10.00 per hour and, in addition, will be awarded a $1,250 scholarship. Graduate assistants who do well may be asked to assist the admissions department for a second semester. We only award this position to one student per semester.

Please inquire about these positions with your professors as they select their teaching assistants. Teaching assistants are paid $10.00 an hour and can work a maximum of 20 hours a week. A select few are awarded each academic year.
