Student Engagement in Research, Scholarship & Creative Activity
The Student Engagement in Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity SERSCA Assistantship Program enables students to work under the direct supervision of faculty in RSCA endeavors. SERSCA Assistantships bring the academic experience to life and create new ways for students to see their fields of study – through examining a significant research question or exploring important scholarly or creative endeavors. The faculty-student mentoring relationship that these assistantships avail expand horizons beyond what students had previously imagined. And with more than 60% of Stan State alumni staying in our region, these transformational Assistantship experiences not only impact our students, but also the region in which our graduates serve.
Undergraduate Assistantships are $1,000 awards to work 80 hours under the supervision of a faculty mentor, and Graduate Assistantships are $2,000 awards to work 115 hours under the supervision of a faculty mentor.
Reaching our fundraising goal of $40,000 means we can provide up to 20 additional Undergraduate Assistantship experiences, or up to 10 additional Graduate Assistantship experiences for Stan State students.
Faculty/staff wishing to offer SERSCA support utilizing payroll deduction may do so by completing the form, writing "SERSCA" in the fund area and submitting the payroll deduction form to University Advancement.
