Emerging Scholars - 2nd year Application
We will be able to support some of our Emerging Scholars for a 2nd academic year. Emerging Scholars and mentors should meet to discuss whether they have time and interest in continuing to work together for the next academic year. This discussion should include:
- The number of hours per week of work the mentor has available
- The number of hours per week the student can manage given their fall courseload and other commitments
- The project or tasks that the student will work on. Will this change or stay the same as this year?
After having this discussion, the student should fill out this webform to indicate their interest in continuing. If you are interested in serving as a peer mentor for the new class of Emerging Scholars, please fill out the second part of the form. We will let you know by the end of finals week whether we are able to support you for a second year as an Emerging Scholar and/or as a peer mentor.
Participation in Emerging Scholars is contingent upon accepting a federal work study award for next year. Be sure you have logged into Enroll & Pay and have reviewed and accepted any financial aid you are interested in accepting. The typical Federal Work Study award for a second year student is $4500, however each student's financial aid package is different. Second year Emerging Scholars will be paid $11/hour. Students could work up to 409 hours total, or about 13 hours per week for 30 weeks. These 13 hours could all be spent doing research or may be split with 5 hours spent as a peer mentor and 8 hours per week working on research. Hours per week will vary depending on the student's Federal Work Study Award and/or start date.
