Geared toward incoming first-year students, this program pairs a student with a faculty mentor to work on a project related to the faculty member's research or creative area. Students gain hands-on experience with scholarship in a specific field, and may elect to continue during their sophomore year. Participation is selective, based on high academic achievement.
Students are expected to work a maximum of 7 hours per week, for a compensation of $10/hour. Up to $800 can be earned as a Student Research Partner over the course of the year.
