At Glendon, students have an incredible opportunity for mentorship and community. Our small class sizes and community-oriented campus encourage students to get involved and discover their passion. The Research Apprentice Program offers students an unparalleled opportunity to receive mentorship from a faculty member, develop skills in conducting research and explore their interests. Participants in first or second year should expect to spend up to 5 hours per week doing apprenticeship-related work.
In 2021-2022, participants will receive a $1,000 award. In some cases, for students in third year and up, course credit through an independent reading course or thesis course may be possible.
