Highlander research rookies program 

The Highlander Research Rookies program provides 15 apprenticeships each year to high-achieving and highly-motivated first and second year students. Students, selected as Highlander Research Rookies through a competitive process, are paired with a faculty mentor, working alongside him or her for 10 hours per week, thereby maximizing opportunities for research-based engagement and learning. Students earn a $4,000 stipend ($2,000 at the end of each semester with the submission of their research progress report). Find out more on the Research Rookies website.
