Work for Project RAISE

Project RAISE focuses on increasing the number of Hispanic and low-income transfer students who complete bachelor’s degrees and enter careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It is funded through two grants: Project RAISE (Regional Alliance in STEM Education) and Project RAISER (Regional Alliance in STEM Education Refined).


Project RAISE employs CSUF students in many roles, including:

  • Peer Advisors (PAs) – mentor new transfer students at CSUF as part of the RAISE Transfer Program and visit partner community colleges to connect with students before they transfer. PAs work during academic semesters with optional summer work with the Undergraduate Research Experience. PAs must be transfer students or enrolled in NSM/ECS.

  • Student Assistants (SAs) – staff the Transfer Resource Center, a space for all CSUF students to study and engage with Project RAISE staff.

  • Human Services Interns (HUSR) – serve in similar roles as PAs and assist with RAISE Transfer Program (RTP) activities. Interns must be HUSR majors and transfer students.

  • Graduate Assistants (GAs) – support Project RAISE staff and activities.  GAs must be transfer students.


We are hiring Student Staff for Summer and Fall 2024!

Project RAISE student staff will gain leadership experience and become part of a broader STEM community that includes the Project RAISE network of faculty, students, administrators, and staff.  Staff will be ambassadors for CSUF’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NSM) and College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) at campus outreach events.
