The First Year Research Experience (FYRE) Program supports full-time, degree-seeking, first-year work students who are work-study eligible. Through the program, Federal Work Study awards support a job in research or creative activities under the supervision and guidance of a faculty mentor. Students are employed by the Office of Undergraduate Research and are matched with a position on campus. Students will commit to 5-10 hours per week on their assigned project and will be paid $10/hour. This year’s cohort will have the opportunity to participate in HuskerWork as part of their FYRE appointment.
