Brock Scholars Student Assistantships

Because UTC is a strong undergraduate institution with a relatively small graduate student population, outstanding undergraduate students have opportunities that would be reserved for graduate students at larger research universities, such as participating in faculty research, helping organize academic conferences, assisting in editing professional journals, developing new lab experiments or teaching materials under faculty direction, and much more. The Brock Scholars Assistant Program was developed to facilitate just such beneficial faculty/student partnerships. The program began in August 2001 with funding from the UC Foundation Student Affairs Committee.

All UTC full-time faculty are eligible to apply for a Brock Scholars Student Assistant at the beginning of the fall semester. After faculty applications are received, all Brock Scholars in good standing are invited to apply for positions that interest them. Students are then matched with faculty based on expressed interest and available funding. Positions may be one semester or year-long. Students earn $10.00 per hour up to a maximum of $1000 per semester.

Full-time faculty members from all disciplines are encouraged to apply for assistants. Applications for student assistants will be distributed via email to all faculty prior to the start of the fall and spring terms.  Contact Greg O'Dea for more information.
