Campus-Based Fellowships & Research Assistantships

As part of Washington University in St. Louis, Brown School students have access to a variety of campus-based fellowships and research assistantships.

Across campus, Brown School students are sought after for fellowships in Residential Life, Student Involvement & Leadership, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, and the Gephardt Institute for Civic & Community Engagement, and so on. Our office will share these positions throughout the spring. 

In addition, some Brown School faculty will hire student research assistants in the spring (others will wait until the late-summer and early-fall to offer these positions). Brown School Research Assistantships will be posted here, as well.
