undergrad research opportunities

The Collaboratorium provides undergraduate students with advanced historical training through paid summer internships that combine formal instruction, experiential learning, peer learning, community-engagement and mentored participation in original research projects. The Community-Engaged Research Collaboratorium hires more than a dozen student researchers each summer to conduct original research in collaborative partnerships with communities.

Training Provided:

During the first two weeks of May, students receive intensive methodological training related to a wide range of topics including database construction, archival research, genealogy, oral history, etc.


Summer Research:

Once training is complete, students consult with community partners to draft a research plan, and then conduct original research under the guidance of both a faculty and a graduate mentor. Undergraduate student researchers also communicate and collaborate regularly with their community partner to ensure ongoing feedback and direction.
