Please note that a single application has to be submitted by each student-faculty team. The faculty researcher should establish the user account and submit the application on behalf of the research team, but it is expected that the student essays will be prepared by the students and submitted with the faculty researcher. Each team should include the leading faculty researcher and no fewer than two undergraduate or graduate students and no more than three students.
If two faculty members decide to join as co-PI’s on a given team, select the lead PI and enter his/her name in the main box and add the second name and contact in the “additional information” text box. Faculty stipends in this case are to be shared.
Joint projects entered separately are also encouraged; each application should make a convincing case as to the value of the research collaboration.
