Posted: July 23, 2008 at 1:00 am, Last Updated: November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

Faculty members and students have just over three weeks to prepare and submit their applications for the fall 2008 Undergraduate Faculty-Student Apprenticeship Program.

Approximately 16 to 18 scholarly projects on which faculty members and students work closely together throughout the semester will be selected in a competitive process. The deadline to apply for the fall semester is Friday, Aug. 15.

The program is designed to encourage Mason’s high-achieving undergraduate students to become involved in research and creative projects early in their academic careers, under the guidance of a faculty mentor.

A $1,000 stipend is provided to the students selected for the program. Students are also funded to attend several undergraduate research conferences or disciplinary conferences, including that of the Colonial Academic Alliance.

In addition to meeting and working closely with their faculty members, students will meet as a group three times during the semester to discuss professional development issues, including preparing for graduate school, graduate funding, designing a poster or other professional presentation and writing abstracts.

Applications from all disciplines and departments are encouraged. Faculty members and students should collaborate and submit applications online at the links below.
