Teaching Resources: Student Research Assistants
Faculty Support Fund
The Faculty Support Fund provides funding for faculty members to pay for student assistants to support them, primarily during the summer months but also during the academic year. Faculty at Haverford have regularly, and successfully, used these funds for curricular development, asking students to do research and help plan for a new course, or renovate an existing one.
How to apply:
Applications are solicited by the Provost’s Office on an annual basis in December. Awards are made in March, and funds are available for one year.
John B. Hurford '60 Center for Arts and Humanities
The Hurford Center for Arts and Humanities also sponsors Student Research Assistants, who can be used for curricular development. Humanities Faculty or Departments may apply for funding of $4,300 to cover student wages and materials for up to 10 weeks of summer work.
Center for Peace and Global Citizenship
The Center for Peace and Global Citizenship funds six student research assistant positions during the academic year. Research projects should fall within the Center's mission to enable the study, promotion and understanding of peace and global citizenship; they can be used to support curricular development. Full-time and continuing faculty wishing to employ a student researcher (max. 100 hours/student) should submit a short description of the project and the work in which the student would be engaged. Twice yearly application deadlines (fall & spring).
