Research Apprenticeship Program


2019 Honors Research Apprenticeship Program Call for Proposals

The 2019 Honors Research Apprenticeship Program provides opportunities for Athens campus undergraduate students in the Honors Tutorial College (HTC) and OHIO Honors Program (OHP) to expand their research and creative skills by working on a faculty member’s project. The goal is the creation of a lively intellectual experience that is mutually beneficial.

Faculty members who have served as an HTC director of studies, taught an HTC tutorial within the last three years, or submitted an OHIO Honors course enhancement proposal are eligible to apply for a 2019 research apprentice. An interdisciplinary faculty committee will assist in selecting which projects receive funding.

HTC and OHP staff will advertise the selected faculty proposals to HTC and OHP students, and our first-, second-, and third-year students are eligible to apply. Participating faculty members then interview up to four applicants and select their apprentices, who are not required to be in the same department, school, or college as the faculty member. Faculty members do not receive additional compensation beyond having the student work on their research project. Student apprentices earn $10 an hour for their work.

While the work that research apprentices undertake may be independent in nature, substantive oversight must be provided by the faculty member. Students must complete the 300 apprenticeship hours during summer 2019 or during fall and spring semester in academic year 2019-2020. If your plans involve spending a significant amount of time away from campus this summer or next academic year, please do not submit a proposal. 


Faculty wishing to apply should e-mail a CV and completed Faculty Proposal/Working Agreement Form to Cary Frith, interim dean of the Honors Tutorial College (, no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 15, 2019. Late applications will not be accepted.

Notification of funding status will be sent by March 1, 2019. Funded projects will then be advertised, and students will have two weeks to submit a resume and cover letter directly to the faculty member. Funded faculty members will then interview up to four applicants and select their apprentices by March 29, 2019.

If you have questions related to this process, please contact Cary Frith ( or 593-2723).
