Still Available for Spring 2021 — Batalden Ethics Research Assistant (RA) Positions

submitted by

The Batalden Scholar in Applied Ethics program is pleased to announce that there is funding available to Augsburg faculty who wish to mentor undergraduate research assistants to support student or faculty research in applied ethics. Funding for this RA program is generously supported by Paul ’63 and LaVonne (Olson) Batalden ’63, and Stephen ’67 and Sandra Batalden.

Eligibility: Currently enrolled undergraduate Augsburg student with a strong interest in applied ethics research.

Stipend: Mirroring URGO, the selected undergraduate research assistants will complete 50 hours of work and receive a $500 stipend at the end of the Spring 2021 semester.

Award reporting: All students who are awarded a Batalden RA position will be required to attend a May 2021 virtual event to briefly report on the impact of their research assistantship. Faculty working with their RA are strongly encouraged to attend as well.

Applications: Faculty should submit their application using this link (also shown below); faculty applicants may request additional funds to support the undergraduate RAs work for consideration (to avoid these costs being deducted out of the RA stipend). Students should submit their letter of interest and resume directly to the faculty member they would like to work with prior to faculty completing the Google Form application. Applications will be reviewed until program funds are no longer available.

Information: Please email Prof. Bibiana Koh, Batalden Scholar in Applied Ethics, if you have any questions about this program.
