The Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program is the Center's initiative to internationalize undergraduate education at Harvard. It gives students the chance to work with CES resident faculty members and visiting fellows 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.
Please note that only currently enrolled undergraduate students are eligible to apply.
Interested in a position with a focus primarily on history? The History Department at Harvard offers research and employment opportunities for undergraduate students focusing on political science and economics within the realm of history.
Please check back in late summer for new opportunities for the 2018-2019 academic year!
