How do I apply as an Assistant?

Students - the call for student applications for Spring 2017 URCA Assistant positions will go out over the student list serve around late October/early November.  Please be sure to check your SIUE e-mail account for e-mails from Dr. Pawlow at that time. 

The application deadline for FALL 2016 is Friday July 15,  2016, at 4:00 p.m.  No late applications will be accepted. 

Students apply for URCA Assistant positions through this website. Click here for a complete listing of all Assistant positions that are available for the Fall 2016 semester.

Students are able to apply for multiple positions, but a new application must be completed for each position. Also, students are only allowed to accept one Assistant position per semester! Once you've committed to one professor's position, you are not allowed to accept another professor's offer.

Any undergraduate student who has a cumulative GPA of 2.3 or above and who will be enrolled as a full-time student (minimum of 12 credit hours) at SIUE for the entire Fall 2016 semester may apply. Students are not allowed to hold both an URCA Assistant and an URCA Associate position at the same time.

Faculty must select students to fill their positions by Monday August 22, 2016. However, faculty may choose to fill their positions earlier.  As such, be sure to frequently check your email over the break.  

Please note: The URCA Assistant stipend for the 2016-2017 academic year has been reduced to $750 (from $1000 previously).
