Students are eligible to apply for funding on a one-time basis in the year 2021 for research that can be accomplished in 11 weeks. Recipients of awards will be notified in March 2021, to allow early planning, purchase of supplies and preparation for summer research projects. Research projects will be considered for funding for which work can be done in a single summer. Students enrolled in the research elective emphasis area may submit a continuation plan on anticipated further work to be done in separate modules funded by other means (e.g., a research mentor’s funded grant) that span up to two summers and/or multiple 2-4 week elective blocks.
