The Social Sciences, Humanities, and Arts Research Experience (SHARE) Award is a research apprenticeship program designed especially for students in the earlier stages of their college careers. A SHARE project serves as an introduction to research in a chosen field and helps students develop the skills they will need for further research projects. SHARE awardees spend an average of 9 hours per week during the Spring 2022 semester working on a faculty project.
Student Eligibility: First-, second-, or third-year undergraduate students who are majoring or pre-majoring in the social sciences, humanities, or arts at any UConn campus are eligible to apply. Students with little or no previous research involvement are encouraged to apply. Students must be a full-time student at a UConn campus (i.e., not studying abroad) during the SHARE semester – Spring 2022.
Funding: During the spring semester, student apprentices will receive a $1,500 stipend (paid out as an hourly wage) and faculty mentors will receive a $500 professional development stipend.
SHARE Teams: SHARE teams consist of a faculty mentor and a student apprentice who apply jointly for the program. Faculty members are encouraged to recruit student apprentices to work with them on a potential SHARE project, and students interested in the program may also approach faculty members to express their interest in a potential project.
Deadline: Applications must be submitted by 11:59 pm on Monday, October 18, 2021. Program details and a link to the online application are available on the SHARE page of the Office of Undergraduate Research website.
