The Honors Tutorial College, in partnership with the Vernon R. and Marion Alden Library Endowment, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education, the Russ College of Engineering and Technology, and the Office of the Vice President for Research and Creative Activity, invites all interested Athens freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to apply for the 2017-2018 research apprenticeships.
The research apprenticeship program hires students to work on faculty members’ research projects. Depending on the faculty member’s need, a student may be hired to work 300 hours during the summer OR 10 hours per week during the 2017-18 academic year. Students earn $10 per hour.
To apply for an apprenticeship, you must email the faculty member offering the apprenticeship. Your email should explain your qualifications and interest in the project and have an attached resume. The faculty member's contact information is provided with each project description in the PDFs. It is helpful to meet with an adviser in the Career and Leadership Development Center in Baker Center 533 to help you compose your letter and resume before applying for the position.
Any Athens freshmen, sophomores, and juniors may apply for these opportunities. The deadline to apply is 5 PM on March 20th. Faculty members will interview up to five applicants for their apprenticeships. They must make their final hiring decision by April 3rd. You may apply for more than one apprenticeship.
