About the Program

The SR Apprenticeship program invites diverse voices, welcomes fresh minds, and encourages eager learners from City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) to be part of our thriving environment. The goal is to open an opportunity that will support the development of well-trained professionals with a solid foundation of sponsored research knowledge, positioning them to be attractive candidates for permanent full-time roles at the completion of their 1-year apprenticeship.

The SR Apprenticeship program is a new partnership with the City Colleges of Chicago’s Economic & Workforce Innovation Department. We are excited that CCC has decided to partner with us to develop a new talent pipeline for research administration and are thrilled to welcome our inaugural apprentices:
