We will be selecting up to 7 applicants. Selection criteria include novelty and quality of the research concept and plan, and our desire to present a variety of topics. APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY 5pm EST ON APRIL 1, 2018. We will notify applicants regarding their selection no later than APRIL 15, 2018.
If selected, your goal will be to convince the Lion's Den - through a quick 5-minute presentation - that your research topic is worthwhile, your approach is good, and that you are worth mentoring. After your 5 minute "pitch", the fun begins.... The mentors will have 7-10 minutes to constructively critique and debate the plan with each other, and to make offers and counter-offers for mentorship.
If you have questions about the application or the presentation, email Dr. Megan Ranney at firstname.lastname@example.org
