Economics Undergraduate Summer Research Assistant Program

The program will run for ten week periods during the summer.  Participants will work on a one-on-one basis with faculty on an on-going policy analysis research project with the goal being a complete immersion of the student in the research process.  Over the course of the summer, students will be mentored and trained by the professor so that they are able to play a key role in the research project, and are prepared to conduct their own research.


Undergraduate who have declared Economics as their major and are at least sophomores with strong academic records will be given preference.


The RA will work at least 20 hours per week, with the hours split between directed research for a faculty sponsor and to the development of an independent research topic.


Each RA will receive a stipend of $4,500 for ten weeks of full-time research work.
