Important Changes for this Submission Cycle

For this submission cycle we have moved to an electronic format using Google Forms. Students can submit their forms here.

After submitting the form, students will receive an email copy of their responses. They should then forward this email to their faculty mentor and the department chair.

After reviewing the submitted form, faculty mentors will need to submit their letter of recommendation via email to Dr Kylee Spencer at

Department chairs will also need to indicate their approval of the project via email to

Obviously this format is a little clunky, and we are hoping to move to something easier in the future. Please let me know Dr. Spencer know if you have any trouble during the submission process.

Lastly, there are still many unknowns due to COVID-19. All awards are contingent on whatever travel or research policies the university has in place at the time of the project.
