A complete mini-grant application includes:
- A one-page, single-spaced description of the project, understandable to a non-specialist. This should include the project's start and end dates and must be written by the student; however, the Student Fellowships Committee expects the faculty mentor to advise the student and to review the application and budget to ensure that all appropriate information is included.
- An itemized budget and detailed budget justification with all figures rounded to the nearest $10. To view a sample budget, please click here. Please note that the Committee expects students to put forward a plan to use the funds as effectively as possible. This often means staying in hostels, sharing hotel room, using mass transit when possible, etc. Students are also expected to see if departmental funds are available and, if available, explain how they will be used.
A PDF of the student's unofficial academic history from Polaris.
One letter of support from the faculty mentor.
