Research Apprenticeship Program

The Research Apprenticeship Program pairs faculty members with undergraduate students to work on original research or creative projects. The intent is to support the faculty member in his or her scholarly pursuits while at the same time providing the student with an opportunity for sustained mentoring. The relationship is mutually beneficial and supportive.


Typically, more than 20 apprenticeships are offered per year. Faculty on the Athens campus submit proposals to the Honors Tutorial College dean in January. The research apprenticeship program hires students to work on the selected faculty members’ research projects. Depending on the faculty member’s need, a student may be hired to work 25 hours a week for 12 weeks during the summer, for 10 hours a week for the 30 weeks of the 2015-16 academic year, or for 10 hours a week for the 15 weeks of fall semester. 

HTC journalism and studio art students produce Inquiry, Research Apprenticeship Edition, annually. To read the latest issue and find out about the projects selected for the apprenticeship program last academic year,  click here.
