Commonwealth College Research Assistant Fellowships

Commonwealth Honors College students who are currently sophomores or juniors and have a cumulative GPA of 3.4 or higher are eligible to apply. These Fellowships are working fellowships that pay $9.00 per hour (in accordance with 1/1/15 increase in Mass. minimum wage) up to a maximum of $1,000 for students to work on a faculty member's research project. The program is designed to provide supplemental financial assistance, to give students an opportunity to gain experience in their academic field, and to help prepare them to undertake their own research.

Students must submit an application jointly with a faculty member.

For application guidelines and a link to the online application system (FGS), please go to the Commonwealth Honors College website or paste the direct link into your browser:


Students must register and submit their essay online.  Since applications may not be revised online, students and their faculty sponsors must communicate regarding revisions before the student submits their essay.

Deadline for applications is Tuesday, October 7, 2014.
