The applicant should provide a written description of the proposed research, a time schedule, and a budget.
Only undergraduate or graduate students currently enrolled in degree seeking programs or high school students may apply. High school and undergraduate students who are graduating seniors must plan to complete their research prior to graduation.
Reimbursable Expenses (expenses will be reimbursed as receipts are turned in):

2. Supplies and equipment specific to the proposed project not generally available in an institutional research laboratory.
