The HOUR Program
The HOUR Program offers students a chance to collaborate with department faculty on their scholarly work. Each semester, students may apply to assist those members of the History faculty who would like help on their research projects. Students may receive compensation in the form of either:
- an HOURly rate of $10, up to $300 (30 HOURS) a semester or
summer (with reapplication possible) payable at the conclusion of the
- credit for HIS 391 (Independent Study), providing you complete a substantial writing assignment based on their research. If you choose this option, you must register for the course and devise a syllabus with the professor.
Please fill out an application and submit it on-line or you may print it and submit it to the History Department office in 364 Rush Rhees Library. If you want to work with a professor from whom you have not taken a course, you must also submit a letter of recommendation from a faculty member who has taught you. Letters of recommendations can be sent to the History Department office or submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
