The collaborative effort between Student Affair’s University Internship Program and the VPR’s Office of Undergraduate Research defines “research” represents scholarly inquiry in any discipline. This program is available to underclassmen (no juniors or seniors) that demonstrate financial need (i.e., Work Study-eligible), with a 2.75 GPA, and are looking to gain practical research experience. Faculty or units can identify top-performing, eligible students or advertise their position on Rowdy Jobs through the UTSA Career Center. This program will pay 75% of each student’s $9/hr for 19hr/week max. The requesting unit will pay only 25% of their student’s salary.
Fifteen Research Internship positions (coordinating with OUR). Any degree-conferring college or research unit can secure up to 2 Research Interns. This is a first-come, first-serve opportunity. However, it is our goal to provide additional such positions each semester. If you are already paying a UG researcher, you may also be able to convert the student payment to this program.
