The Spring 2013 Honors Research Assistant Program (HRAP) is now open. HRAP provides an opportunity for students to work with professors as research assistants on specific projects. The purpose of the program is to involve students in a faculty research project, and teach them how to develop research into a completed project.
THERE ARE 8 POSITIONS AVAILABLE FOR SPRING 2013.
ONCE THEY ARE FILLED, THE HRAP PAGE WILL BE CLOSED.
Please note the guidelines:
1. Professors may hire only one student.
2.Professors may receive HRAP funding for a maximum of two consecutive semesters. After two semesters of HRAP funding the professor is not eligible to apply for additional HRAP funding for one semester. Those who received HRAP funding for the Spring and Fall 2012 semesters are not eligible to post a position until Fall 2013. You may post a position if you received funding for only one of those semesters.
3. The period for an assistantship is 10 weeks. All positions begin February 4 and end April 19.
4. Students are now required to follow payroll procedures and will be paid monthly, at the end of February, March and April. Please notify Melanie Wright if a student fails to work and we will cancel the student’s employment.
5. Student assistants are expected to work 10 hours a week for ten weeks; we have raised their stipend to $900 because they will have to pay taxes.
6. Honors College students with at least 15 hours of college credit and at least a 3.40 GPA are eligible to apply.
7. Once a professor has hired a student, please forward the student’s application to Dr. Wright immediately (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will contact the student with payroll procedures.
Faculty: To begin using this system, email Robert Kelly and include:

Soon thereafter, you will receive an email from Robert with a link to an online folder where you can modify or supplement the details (or even add a video/audio file) by using your OU 4+4 login.
As students apply, you will receive their submissions (by email) instantly but the "from" email will be email@example.com. Please respond directly to the student with the email address they provide in their application.
