2020-2021 Research Assistant Faculty Project Submissions Now Open

Aresty Research Assistant Faculty Proposals Open Image

We are happy to begin collecting research proposals for the 2020-2021 Research Assistant Program .

Next year's program will run from September 1, 2020 to April 30, 2021.

The Aresty Research Assistant (RA) Program enables students to gain their first authentic research experiences by supporting faculty research projects during the academic year. RAs learn valuable research skills by working side by side with professors on forefront research projects, while professors benefit from a structured program to recruit and train the next generation of researchers. Students selected for the program do five hours of research per week (or more by arrangement with their professor). Selected students also attend peer group meetings with other undergraduate researchers to practice scholarly communication, explore research ethics, design posters, and discuss research methodology.

All research proposals are due 11:59pm on Monday, February 24th. 

Please visit here for more information on participating. You can also create a new project or replicate an existing one. 

Thanks for your support of this program and the incredibly powerful experience it offers to students.
