The letter also must include the tuition benefit plan’s annual amount. The letter must contain the employer’s contact information. The letter can be emailed to MSF-Masters@Eccles.Utah.edu. Please be aware we will verify the letter.

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

Graduate assistants are permitted to work 7 to 10 hours per week at $10 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 an hour and can work a maximum of 20 hours a week. A select few are awarded each academic year.
