CAPC Research Assistantship Program
The CAPC Research Assistantship Program is for students interested in developing their research and professional skills as well as gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation of the study of American politics. Research Assistants (RAs) are paired with a faculty member who directs their research for the semester as well as helping them develop a unique project based at least in part, on the research they are conducting on behalf of the faculty member. In addition, students are also assigned a graduate student to help mentor and guide them through the research process. RAs are also given formal training in writing, data analysis, public speaking/presentation skills, conducting academic research, and formulating cogent research questions.

CAPC was granted funds by the Fund for Latino Scholarship at the American Political Science Association to hire a Research Fellow to work on issues related to race and ethnicity in American politics. The fellow should be interested and excited about the possibility of going to graduate school in a social science field.
