McGregor research fellows

Henry Institute undergraduate research fellows

The Henry Institute is dedicated to motivating and training future scholars and practitioners who will continue the exploration and practice of integrating faith and public life. Undergraduate fellowships regularly provide opportunities for current students at Calvin University to work with the Institute and with university faculty. Undergraduate fellows benefit from working on scholarly research and receiving mentoring from various professors, as the Institute provides grants to fund research projects involving the interplay between religion and public life. Opportunities for additional involvement in the programs and projects of the Institute are also provided to students, as they participate in various administrative duties and Henry Institute events.

Center for Social Research

The Center for Social Research (CSR) offers research assistant positions to students. Student research assistants support and manage ongoing projects. Common tasks include data entry and audio transcriptions, but the RA job is primarily about problem-solving in response to unique project needs. CSR seeks out applicants with strong personal initiative, who can take responsibility for meeting project deadlines and communicate clearly with on- and off-campus clients. Due to the extensive training we provide for our research assistants, we are particularly interested in students who have at least one or two years left at Calvin.
