We are happy to announce the 2020-2021 Research Assistant Program Application is now open from March 2, 2020-April 17, 2020. Interested students can find opportunities to support professors working on cutting-edge research in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and arts.
The Research Assistant program is designed to make the process of joining a research project easy and transparent for undergraduates. Students have access to project descriptions, applicant responsibilities, and prerequisites for applying to work on a particular project. These tools allow students to make informed decisions about which type of project will suit them best.
Accepted students are required to complete five hours of research per week during the 2020-2021 academic year. Many students elect to complete more than five hours a week to earn credit for their research.
Students must also attend bi-monthly peer discussion group meetings at the Aresty Research Center. These meetings are designed to help students navigate the research process and prepare them to present their work at the Undergraduate Research Symposium in April 2021.

We are looking forward to working with you, Good Luck!
