Discover Grant Proposal Criteria for Evaluation

Please consider the following questions and criteria when drafting a Discover Grant proposal:

N.B. Only current UR undergraduates are eligible for pay from the Discover Grant fund; further, this funding cannot be used to pay a student who is doing the research for academic credit. Expect a strong bias against funding proposals that request money to pay a student for research during the academic year when the opportunity to do the work for credit is available.
