Student Research Assistantships (SRA)
The Student Research Assistantship program provides an opportunity for talented, industrious undergraduate students to work closely with faculty members in an area of special interest. Research assistantships are selected students who will work exclusively on research projects. Your work-study eligibility will not be affected; however, you will have to report what you earn to the IRS as taxable income. Please note that no students, regardless of work-study status, are permitted to work more than 20 hours a week.
