The Sophomore Research Program provides opportunities for students to work as paid research assistants to Wooster faculty members. Through this program students become true partners with faculty in the research process and acquire an understanding of the process involved in conducting research.
Faculty members in any academic department are able to hire Sophomore Research Assistants. Each semester, approximately 30 projects are funded. The deadline for Spring 2014 has passed, summer applications will be accepted in January.
Students are eligible to participate in the program from the second semester of their first year through the first semester of their junior year. Sophomore Research Assistants generally work three -seven hours per week for the semester.
Additional benefits for participants in this program include:
The deadline for spring semester applications is 8 a.m. November 27! Check out the openings. Applications will require a current resume. Make an appointment with Career Planning, or stop by APEX on Wednesdays from 1:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. to get help preparing your resume.
