Call for Proposals
Summer Undergraduate Research Program
Due, March 1, 2012
Generous donations from the Carroll County Cancer Association to the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research provide support for Purdue undergraduate students who wish to undertake a cancer research project during the summer.
The project must be conducted in the laboratory of a Purdue Center for Cancer Research member and must have direct relevance to cancer. The award is for 00 and must be equally matched by funds from the faculty sponsor (one student will be awarded per sponsor). Both Center and matching funds are restricted to student salaries.
Any Purdue University Undergraduate in good standing is eligible. The student must name a faculty sponsor. However, only proposals not funded through departments, schools or other summer undergraduate research programs will be eligible for funding through the Center (Faculty sponsors should indicate their undergraduate research support funds received for the current and past year (2011 and 2012) for their laboratory on the cover page).
The application should include:
Final selection will be made by the Executive Committee of the Center. Those receiving awards will be asked to present a summary of their project at the Carroll County Cancer Association Annual Meeting in the Fall of 2012 (usually in October). In addition, recipients will be expected to submit a summary of their research project at the end of August. A template for the report will be sent to you and your advisor by August 1, 2012.
Electronic applications (as a Word or PDF document) must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Noon, March 1, 2012. Awards are available for the summer, typically starting June 1, 2012.
