4. University Apprenticeship Program

The Undergraduate Faculty-Student Apprenticeship Program is designed to 
encourage Mason's high-achieving undergraduate students to become involved 
in research and creative projects early in their academic careers under the 
guidance of a faculty mentor.

Up to 18 scholarly projects on which faculty members and students work 
closely together throughout the semester will be selected. In addition to 
meeting and working closely with their faculty members, students will meet 
as a group three times during the semester to discuss professional 
development issues, including preparing for graduate school, graduate 
funding, designing a poster or other professional presentation and writing 

A $1,000 stipend is provided to the students selected for the program. 
Students are also funded to attend several undergraduate research 
conferences or disciplinary conferences. Some stipends to cover materials 
purchased as part of the project are available to faculty who participate.

Applications from all disciplines and departments are encouraged. Faculty 
members and students should collaborate and submit applications online. For 
more information, contact Deirdre Moloney.

The deadline to apply for the summer term is April 15.
