Lawrence University Research Fellows (Summer 2021)
Administrative Assistant: Ellen Walsh in the Briggs Hall Office provides administrative assistance for the Lawrence University Research Fellows program. Ellen can assist with forms and reimbursement requests and answer questions.
LU-RF Stipend: $4,080 for a full-time 10-week summer research session (June 14 to August 20). Salaries will be prorated for students working fewer hours or weeks. Students are paid over five pay periods. LU-RF students do not submit time sheets, so it is up to the faculty mentor to manage their work hours. Stipends should be arranged early in spring term by submitting the Faculty Grant Statement for Student Employment form to Ellen Walsh in the Briggs Hall office.
Project Expenses: Some projects include funding for materials, laboratory supplies, or travel to field sites. Financial forms and receipts should be submitted to Ellen Walsh in the Briggs Hall Office.
Housing for On-Campus LU-RFs: Campus housing is provided free of charge to students working with Lawrence faculty. Students must submit a housing application to Campus Life to guarantee a spot. Students may choose to live off campus at their own expense. Questions should be directed to Campus Life.
Housing and Travel Allowance for Off-Campus LU-RFs: Students working with affiliated faculty at other universities can be reimbursed for travel (up to $500) and for housing (up to the cost of Lawrence summer housing, $635). Students will need to submit reimbursement requests with receipts to Ellen Walsh in the Briggs Hall Office.
Summer Research Kickoff Lunch: On-campus LU Research Fellows and faculty mentors should attend the LU-RF Kickoff Lunch in mid-June.
