This research opportunity, funded by a generous donor, will provide a summer research stipend to one student to pursue scholarly research or a creative/artistic endeavor under the close supervision of the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County (HCSCC).
- The student will receive a $3000 stipend for the equivalent of 8 weeks of full-time work. It is possible for this work to be spread over a longer duration of part-time work.
- The student will be expected to disseminate the work at the 2018 Celebration of Student Scholarship.
- An upcoming HCSCC exhibit focuses on 1918; however, research topic possibilities are quite broad. The research project will be chosen by the student in consultation with the staff at HCSCC, http://www.hcscconline.org/.
- Students from all disciplines are eligible to apply. International students are eligible to apply. Students must intend to continue at Concordia in Fall 2017.
- Concordia’s Office of Undergraduate Research and SGA will do an initial review of applicants, and provide a short list of possible research students to HCSCC who will interview and select the student, in consultation with Concordia.
- At the HCSCC, the student will primarily be engaged in research (over 75% of the time), but may also have the opportunity to engage in other relevant activities that serve the historical society (e.g., one shift a week in the museum, organizational tasks, etc.).
- If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Research (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Applications are due January 27, 2017.
