The Office of Student Engagement & Experiential Learning is seeking faculty proposals to host an Undergraduate Research Assistant during the spring 2014 semester.
NIU’s URA Program awards faculty with funding to hire an undergraduate to work 150 hours (10 hours per week for 15 weeks) at the pay rate of $10 per hour.
This program allows for a symbiotic relationship between faculty mentors and mentees in which the faculty members receive valuable assistance in completing their own research projects while the undergraduate assistants are able to learn hands-on research skills in their chosen fields.
In its second year, the URA program has been found to be a valuable experience for both the faculty mentors and the Undergraduate Research Assistants.
Faculty interested in hosting an Undergraduate Research Assistant during the spring 2014 semester can submit their proposals online.
All proposals are due by 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27.
