Young Scholars Research Assistantship

Summer 2014: Announcing the new IHS Young Scholars Research Assistantship

The Young Scholars Research Assistantship is a new program open to 1st and 2nd year graduate students in PhD programs. It presents an extraordinary opportunity to do research with a scholar during the summer in the humanities or social science field of your choice. Participants have the option of working with a professor in their vicinity or remotely with faculty outside their region.

$3000 Stipend And More!

In addition to gaining more research experience early in your academic career and the chance of co-authoring an article, the Assistantship provides a $3000 stipend. Participants will also receive an invitation to attend one of our summer or fall programs that match their interests, such as the Summer Research Colloquium at Chapman University.

Assistantship Particulars:

The start date is flexible based on your summer recess schedule and the professor’s availability and will last roughly 8-12 weeks. Applicants can request a professor they know or have their interests matched with a leading scholar from our own network of over 11,000 academics.

Throughout the Assistantship, participants will receive one-on-one academic advising from an IHS Program Officer. At the end they will be required to submit a write-up of the research they conducted and how the time spent may have impacted their future research and career.

Application Deadline: April 16, 2014
