Undergraduate Research Assistant Program

The McCombs Undergraduate Research Assistant program provides opportunities for undergraduate business students to assist faculty research objectives. Funding for these assistantships come from the Research Excellence Fund.

Tenure track faculty members may apply for undergraduate research assistant funding through their department chairs, and will receive final approval from the Associate Dean for Research. Watch for the call for requests from the undergraduate dean during the first or second week of class in the fall and spring semesters. There is no summer research assistantship.

For University-wide Research Assistant rules, visit the Handbook of Operating Procedures.

Interested faculty should contact Prof. Laura Starks, Associate Dean for Research, for further information on the program’s administration and application process.
