MSW Graduate Department Assistant Application

The Department of Social Work has received funding for the 2019-2020 school year, part of which we would like to make available to a student who is interested in acting as a graduate assistant (GA) to the department for the academic year. Responsibilities include assisting department faculty and staff with office projects, assisting faculty with academic and research projects and helping the department assistant with handbooks, bulletins and events. Students will be expected to have a consistent 10 hour per week availability during the regular weekday 9 am – 5 pm office hours.

*Students who are full time employees of DePaul University are not eligible.

MSW students who have confirmed enrollment in the MSW program but have not yet begun classes by April 15 2018 may apply for the department assistantship. The student chosen as a GA will receive both a monetary stipend and tuition waiver in the amount of two, 4-credit-hour graduate courses per quarter for each quarter they work as a GA. Selection will be based on a combination of interest, financial need, and skill set. Skills that will be considered include oral and written communication skills along with the ability to work effectively with faculty and staff. Students must be enrolled in at least 8 credit hours each quarter. This GA position is only open to students with financial need for next year exceeding $5000.

*GAs eligible for the Double Demon discount or other DePaul tuition reimbursement would only be able to use the GA tuition reimbursement for the quarters that they are a GA and could not use this in concurrence with other DePaul tuition benefits.
