The EURēCA! Student Assistants and Fellows Programs provide opportunities for CU Denver undergraduates to get paid to engage in research and creative activities as they explore what it means to be a scholar in their discipline.
EURēCA! Student Assistants is an introductory program that leverages federal-work study dollars and grant funds to provide one year of entry-level salary support to undergraduates new to the research and creative enterprise. Follow the steps below to learn more about this program and see what opportunities are currently available.
EURēCA! Fellows is a competitive funding program for more advanced undergraduates intended to move students beyond the exploration stage into independent scholarship. In addition to the research experience, EURēCA! Fellows engage in monthly professional development trainings, cohort meetups, and other learning opportunities.
EURēCA! Faculty Mentors create content-rich research jobs for undergraduates in any discipline. Our office promotes your positions to undergraduates and reviews applications on a first-come first-serve basis.
We provide interested students with advising and professional development opportunities, allowing you to focus on field-specific scholarship when working with your EURēCA! Mentee.
Zero Cost Even better, there's no cost to you! When you hire a work-study eligible student, the EURēCA! program pays a quarter of their hourly wage with the federal government covering the rest. Support for non-work-study eligible students may be available on a first-come first-served basis. Throughout the process, our office covers all administrative responsibilities including hiring and payroll support.
Be a Mentor We are seeking mentors from both CU Denver and CU Anschutz Medical Campus in all disciplines, and preference will be given to positions that are suitable to undergraduates in their first year or two at the university.
If you have an idea for a position, make it EURēCA!
