University Assistantships

The Honors College identifies honors students 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.

Incoming freshmen are invited to participate in the program. The University Assistantship Program (UAP) is intended for incoming freshmen. However, at various points throughout the academic year the Honors College accepts nominations of currently enrolled honors students from Georgia State faculty and staff members.
