Application information for the 2024-2025 academic year opens spring 2024.
The UR Work-Study program is intended for incoming freshman, transfer, or continuing UTC students who hold a federal work study (FWS) award. The program requires a one-year commitment (fall and spring semesters). During the fall semester, program participants engage in research and professional development training. In spring, student scholars continue research activities, and present findings at the UTC Spring Research and Arts Conference.
The UR Work-Study program experience involves intensive research and career training to prepare students for graduate school, medical school, and professional careers. The program introduces students to the academic research culture through hands-on participation in research or creative projects, professional development training, and community building. Under the direction of faculty mentors and program administrators, student scholars engage in mentored-research activities, job training, and build skills for future professional endeavors. Students across all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Students with a strong desire to pursue research centered careers at the doctoral level are strongly encouraged to apply. Students without prior research experience, first-generation college students, and students from underrepresented and underserved populations are strongly encouraged to apply.
