The UMSL English Department provides a limited number of teaching and tutoring assistantships for MFA students. These assistantships are available for up to two years. In addition to receiving a stipend (approximately $10,000 per academic year), teaching assistants receive 100% remission of their tuition costs (though they do pay incidental student fees).
