The Rains Research Assistant Funds Program is intended to support faculty research by providing financial support for faculty to hire a student research assistant. In addition, the program allows students to develop research experiences and close collaborations with their faculty and other members of their research group. These undergraduate research experiences are one of the high impact practices that have been shown to increase retention and long-term career success for students. This program is available to all full-time tenured & tenure-track faculty. Faculty members on a leave of absence are not eligible.
Please read the Faculty Guidelines for Rains Research Assistants 2019-2020 before applying to the program.
