Spring 2023 Learning-Aligned Employment Program:
Funded Research Experiences for Undergraduate Students 

Dear Faculty,

The Office of Research is supporting a new, exciting opportunity for
San José State University faculty to fund undergraduate student researchers through the state of California-sponsored Learning-Aligned Employment Program (LAEP).

For the Spring 2023 semester, faculty members can apply to hire a student to work on research or creative activity-related projects for 20 hours per week for 16 weeks. Through LAEP, students will be compensated $20 an hour — $6,400 for the Spring semester. This opportunity will allow eligible students to gain hands-on research experience while being compensated for their work.

Interested faculty must apply for this program through the Office of Research. Applications will be accepted through InfoReady until October 28, 2022. The Office of Research will host a virtual Q&A session on Tuesday, October 11 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. To register, please click the registration button below. Attendees will be sent a meeting link after they have registered for the session.

Please direct any related questions to the Office of Research at

Kind Regards,

Richard Mocarski
Associate Vice President for Research
