Summer Research Opportunity

Looking for something to do this summer?

Need to start building your resumé?

Want free housing for the summer?

Apply to become a Summer Research Assistant with WIlliam and Mary’s Economics Department!

While research positions are usually reserved for Juniors and Seniors, professors are looking for motivated Freshmen and Sophomores to work as research assistants at the College this summer.

Spend your summer doing groundbreaking research on topics like:

  • Anti-Trust Economics
  • Environmental Economics
  • Redesigning Economics courses at W&M

While summer courses do not need to be taken as part of the program, this is a great opportunity for students planning to study during the summer since all research assistants are given FREE HOUSING!

This is an opportunity you do not want to miss! Get ahead of your classmates and start working one-on-one with professors...during your first years on campus!

All interested applicants must fill out this form and return it by March 15. This is a competitive process, and all successful applicants will be assigned to professors on a first come first serve basis. 

Please email [[jlsullivan, John Sullivan ]] with any questions. We hope to hear from you soon! In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the semester!
