  4. Recommended: If you have found a faculty member willing to supervise your assistantship, then ask them to provide a short email to confirm that they are willing to be your mentor. The mentor should submit the Mentor Form. Otherwise, the UTA coordinators will match you with a faculty mentor. 

  5. We will review the applications on Monday, April 29, and we will let you know by 11:59pm on April 30 if you are needed for an interview to provide extra information. Interviews (if deemed necessary) will be 10-15 minutes long, and they will will be held on Wednesday, May 1 (last day of classes, timing to be coordinated).
