EARLY RESEARCH PROJECT APPLICATION
Fall 2013
Directions:
1. Complete this form no later than Friday, October 4th and email it to the faculty members
running the projects you are interested in. Be aware that projects get full! The sooner you
apply, the more likely you are to find an available spot.
2. After you submit your application, the faculty running the projects will contact you to set
up an interview time.
3. After your interview, it is up to you and the faculty member to determine whether you
and the research project are a good fit for one another. If they are, then together you will
decide how and when you will participate in the project.
Please note that the Science Center Committee on Diversity is providing you with this
information, but all communication around applying for a research opportunity should be
between you and the relevant faculty members.
