Apply for Summer Graduate Research Assistantship

The Office of Research and Engagement invites interested parties to apply to the FY18 Summer Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA) Program. Funding for the assistantships will be available at the beginning of the 2018 summer term and last through the end of the term.

Each application for a Summer Graduate Research Assistantship must be submitted by a faculty member and must be in support of a named graduate student for the three-month summer period (May, June, and July). While the research project may be in partial fulfillment of the graduate student’s degree requirements, the application must show how the research project will advance the faculty member’s research agenda. The proposals will be judged by a subcommittee of the Research Council and funding will be available at the beginning of the summer term.

The application must be completed by noon, February 28, 2018. There can be no exceptions. A subcommittee of the Research Council will judge proposals and the faculty and department will be informed of the results.
