Graduate Research Positions

The Office of Vice President for Research maintains a list of the approximately 70 research centers and institutes that contribute to the university’s missions of discovery, scholarship and service.

Additionally, research positions may be available within schools and departments and you may wish to speak with your advisor or a faculty member about those opportunities.

Research Days

GW Research Days is an annual, two-day showcase of research, scholarship, and creative endeavors at GW. At Research Days, students communicate the results of their work to the GW community and compete for presentation prizes. Before the event, GW Research Days hosts workshops on presentation and making a research poster. Workshops are typically held in February and March, and the showcase event typically occurs in April. Contact resdays@gwu.edu to learn more.

Research Awards

Search for undergraduate research awards, which fund faculty-mentored undergraduate research projects, and programs that provide research opportunities for undergraduates at federal agencies, national laboratories, and other universities.

The Office of Graduate and Student Assistantships and Fellowships educates graduate students about funding opportunities at the Master’s and PhD levels. Graduate students should speak to their advisor or a faculty member about discipline-specific research awards and opportunities.

Learn more about funding, submission of proposals, and compliance throughout the life of a research project with the Office of Sponsored Projects.
