Undergraduate RA Fellowships

To support research collaborations between MESP faculty and undergraduate students, the program will award two Undergraduate RA Fellowships for the current academic year ($ 1,000, each). The fellowship will be awarded to faculty who work on MES-related (broadly defined) research projects to hire undergraduate students to work as RAs on the project. Interested faculty should submit their applications by February 10, 2020. The application consists of an email by the faculty that briefly describes the research project and job description for the RA to be hired. If the student is already known, please include his/her CV and a transcript. Funding decisions will be made by February 17, 2020. Funds should be used by May 15, 2020. At the end of the project, RAs will be required to submit to the MESP a one-page report explaining what they have learned, and how their involvement in the project have affected their knowledge and understanding of the political/cultural/religious/historical/artistic/linguistic facets of the MENA region. Students need not be MES majors or minors but should have a minimum GPA of 3.2.
