Faculty members submit descriptions of research projects for which they seek assistance. If approved for funding, the research project description and student qualifications will be posted on the GWSB REU web site. Students send completed application (below) to Rick Hess (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be submitted to faculty members. Next, the faculty member selects the student from those who apply. Students will receive an hourly wage for working for the faculty member, based on amount of time worked and nature of the work.
The duties of the student must be definable and substantive rather than menial. Examples of tasks might include running statistical analyses, interviewing respondents, administering questionnaires, collecting data, or conducting library research. When submitting the proposal, the faculty member must identify the nature of the research, the expectations for the students, and the expected dissemination of that research (e.g., journal article, conference presentation). Students should be encouraged to participate in the dissemination of the research, perhaps participating in a GWSB research symposium to present the work. Students involved in these projects may not receive course credit.
For faculty members interested in engaging undergraduates in a research project, please fill out the application and submit to Ed Cherian, email@example.com
