Research Assistantships

The Office of Student Scholarship, Creative Activities, and Research (OSCAR) has coordinated with the Office of Student Financial Aid in order to allow students to use their federal work-study to work as undergraduate research assistants for faculty at George Mason University. The goal of this initiative is to expand opportunities for students to be introduced to the concept of scholarship, and to learn the research or scholarly methods in their field; and to give faculty free project support.
