All students accepted to the MS-HRM Program are automatically considered for a departmental scholarship and graduate assistantship based on the strength of their application materials. A limited number of graduate assistantships within the Department of Management are competitively awarded to MS-HRM students. These 10- or 20-hour per week assignments often involve assisting a management faculty member with his or her teaching or research. Students interested in these opportunities should check the appropriate box in the personal information section of the graduate application.

Many times, graduate assistantships are not obtained until the student is on campus, before the beginning of the semester. So even if a graduate assistantship has not been obtained prior to orientation, there is a still a possibility of obtaining one after you start the program.

Students may also check with the Office of Student Financial Aid for information about other scholarships or fellowships that might be available as well as the Student Employment Office to learn about various work opportunities on campus and in the local community.
