      Research Apprenticeship Program (RAP)

      The research apprenticeship program (RAP) provides freshmen and sophomore students a paid research opportunity to work with faculty members pursuing their own research.

      As a student researcher, you have the opportunity to advance your research skills outside the classroom by working closely with a professor in their research. You will become actively involved with the way that professors in one of the four colleges conduct research and further the knowledge in their particular discipline. As a research assistant, you will be exposed to the types of data, tools and research methods used to perform research. 

      Researchers or project leaders interested in having a RAP student assist in a project can express interest to  The email should include (1) a brief explanation of the project the RAP student will be working on and (2) the type of work a student would be asked to complete.
