Research Assistantships

Summer Institute in Social Research Methods
Research Assistant Program

UChicago undergraduates enrolled in a Summer Institute in Social Research Methods course are eligible to participate in the research assistant grant program which reinforces and extends new research method skills through a faculty-mentored research experience during summer session. Awardees will work as paid part-time research assistants on an ongoing research project of a Social Sciences faculty member.

At this time we are unable to support visiting scholars in the SISRM RA program.
