Research Assistantships

The Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program is CES initiative to internationalize undergraduate education at Harvard. It gives students the chance to work with CES resident faculty members and visiting scholars on a project related to Europe. Students who have participated in this program in the past have researched topics such as Policy Choices and Preferences of the New EU Member States: the Cases of Slovakia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic and Hitler’s Regiment in World War I, and Ideas and Institutions in the Field of Healthcare.

Many recipients of the assistantships have continued their work through the summer. Assistantships involve meaningful research and usually require between 5-10 hours per week. The hourly rate is $13.50. Currently CES has one current open assistantship.
