Student Research Assistantships

Introducing Students to the Practice of the Humanities

Student Research Assistantships provide an opportunity for students and faculty to work closely and collaboratively for their mutual benefit. Under the auspices of the Humanities Center, faculty members involve students in substantive areas of their research during the winter or summer breaks either at Carleton or abroad. Faculty who wish to apply for travel to a research site for their SRA should send a separate explanation and expected budget when they submit the application form below. 


STUDENTS seeking an assistantship are invited to speak with professors in their field about their interest in being an SRA during an upcoming break.

FACULTY should identify and invite a qualified student who would benefit from the Assistantship and who is available during the specified period. Faculty may wish to interview several potential applicants to ascertain the students' interest and previous experience in the project before submitting an application.

GRANT: Pay for up to 40 hours per week of student work during winter and summer breaks.

APPLICATION: When a match between student and faculty member has been made, the faculty member may submit an application to the Humanities Center. Please complete the application form by the appropriate deadline.
