1. Applicants must be current undergraduates enrolled in a college or university or are a recent (December 2013) graduates. Only current undergraduates may compete for prizes.
2. Presentations must feature undergraduate research carried out during April 2013-April 2014. If students are participants in a multi-year project, their presentations should focus on their own contributions to the project during that time frame. As you write your proposal, consult your department head and the person who mentored you in your research. They will be asked to validate your proposal after it is received.
3. If your research is collaborative, you and your teammates will submit one joint proposal for the project. Students are limited to two proposals, namely one for a paper presentation and one for a poster presentation. Each proposal must be on a different topic. Being included in a group presentation counts as one of the proposals, whether or not the student is the lead presenter.
