MS CS Graduate Service Appointments

The department offers graduate assistantships to well qualified applicants, to the extent that waivers are allocated to the department by the university. Applicants are chosen based upon their application materials and their fit for vacant positions in teaching computer literacy, systems administration support, and teaching support for the department.  The assistantships require 20 hours per week of work and offer a stipend of $2,721 per quarter, plus tuition waiver (GSA tuition waivers do not cover the quarterly building fee, services and activities fee, health fee, technology fee, transportation fee, recreation center fee or possible course or program fees)  and health insurance.  

The majority of the department's awards are determined during Spring quarter for the following Fall quarter, although occasionally openings occur for Winter or Spring.  The awards are usually for one year, and often are renewed for one additional year, based upon performance in the program and in the first year assistantship duties.

To apply for an assistantship in the Computer Science Department, please provide a cover letter explaining why you would be an outstanding graduate assistant, along with a completed  department-specific application  (not the form found at the Graduate Program site) and two letters of reference from an employer or other individuals who can address your work or volunteer experience.  Submit these documents directly to the department.  They can be scanned and emailed to compsci@ewu.edu, or delivered or mailed to 319F Computing and Engineering Building, Cheney, WA 99004-2493.
