University Assistantships

Each fall, the Honors College identifies high-ability incoming freshmen to participate in the University Assistantship Program (UAP). Selected students are matched with a department or office of interest, providing an opportunity for students to work on special projects or research. Students in the assistantship program typically work eight hours per week for the entire academic year, earning a total stipend amount of up to $2500.

Assistantships range from assisting professors with lab work associated with their research to working in instructional labs, to participating in ensemble performances — the possibilities are endless.

University Assistantship applications were sent out in June 2016 to the incoming Honors College Class of 2020. Please contact Jacob English if you have any questions regarding the University Assistantship Program.
