Questions? Contact us at
Student ID number or EMPL.
This is your 7 digit ID number, not your NetID. The RCTP program is designed to improve presentation skills, not English language skills. Strong proficiency in English is needed to participate fully in the program. In order to help the selection committee assess the English proficiency of international applicants, Versant and/orTOFEL scores of applicants may be reviewed as part of the selection process. English language learners who have not yet passed The Graduate School's English proficiency requirement are highly encouraged to enroll in the services offered by the English Language Learners Program before applying to participate in RCTP.
Which section would you like to participate?
The Evanston section will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays, 4-6 pm. The Chicago section will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4-6 pm.
Evanston (Monday/Wednesday, 4-6 pm) is preferred
Chicago (Tuesday/Thursday, 4-6 pm) is preferred
I am willing to participate in either section
As of now, do you think you will participate in the Seven Minutes of Scholarship Symposium, or record and edit a 3-minute video? You will not be held to this decision, it is only for planning purposes.
I'm interested in giving a 7-minute symposium presentation.
I'm interested in the video option, taking the extra courses on the Evanston campus
I really don't know
In 200-300 words please tell us why you want to participate in the RCTP Research Communication program. What do you hope to gain?
