The Federal Work Study Research Assistant Program is an opportunity for eligible students to earn hourly wages for mentored research and creative activity opportunities. To qualify, students must: 1) be eligible to receive Federal Work Study, 2) be accepted into a research or creative activity experience with a faculty or graduate student mentor, and 3) not be receiving other forms of funding or academic credit for their research experience.
Priority is given to students who have completed a research program administered by the IUUR office.
All interested students should complete the FWS Research Assistant application. Funds are limited and applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until funds have been exhausted.
