Final Details for Spring Research Proposal Submission
As most of you already know, PRISM will be accepting research proposals to be considered for spring funding. Any student who has completed a PRISM training session is eligible to submit a proposal, provided that you are matched with a PRISM mentor and you have a good understanding of your proposed project and where it is headed over the next few months.
You are reminded to strictly adhere to the required template and to submit using the requested file name. Please visit the PRISM website
for these details. Failure to comply will result in a rejected proposal. The deadline for all submissions is midnight on February 25.
Students who are submitting proposals for the first time should attend Ed’s proposal writing workshop
on Wednesday, February 11, during community hour. RSVP to email@example.com
ASAP if planning to attend. We also emailed you a couple of weeks ago with a reminder about these quickly approaching deadlines.
