Do you have a research project for the 2023-24 academic year on which you’d like to partner with a high-achieving FAHSS student who is interested in learning more about the research process? Consider submitting a faculty application to the Emerging Scholars Program.
The Emerging Scholars program is a unique year-long research or scholarship partnership between a faculty member and a junior or senior undergraduate FAHSS student. Unlike a typical student research-assistant position, the faculty/FAHSS student pair works together to set and accomplish goals on a specific research or scholarship project. The student's work is paid for by the program, and faculty gain assistance for 9 hours per week totaling 125 hours per semester across the academic year. Additionally, Emerging Scholars faculty gain mentoring experience and guidance and, through the Emerging Scholars community, they connect with other faculty.
Faculty applications to the 2023-24 FAHSS Emerging Scholars Program are now being accepted until Feb. 6, 2023. Once the Emerging Scholars faculty are selected, a separate FAHSS student application process will commence.
