Interested students should submit a brief proposal; the requested amount of funding and an overall budget; as well as a letter confirming acceptance to a workshop or a comparable academic research venue for participation. Demonstrated financial need will be prioritized. A letter from an advisor is also required and should speak to the relevance of the workshop to the student’s research and financial need.
