Proposal Process - Richter
The guided process is intended to help students submit a compelling final proposal.
Students should meet with an advisor in International Programs early in the semester prior to starting the guided process in order to formulate their project and identify a faculty supervisor at the start of the academic year. The process includes several opportunities to submit preliminary documents and receive feedback from the International Programs Committee, prior to the final proposal submission in February. Written feedback from the Committee is sent to both the student and the faculty supervisor after each submission during the guided proposal process. In addition, students have several opportunities to hone their project throughout the process including: writing workshops, research workshops, and human subjects review workshops.
Qualified students will be selected for a personal interview with the International Programs Committee as part of the proposal process following the final written submission. Students who are studying abroad during the spring semester may be required to respond to interview questions via alternative means such as email or Skype.
Proposals are judged in their entirety. No single component of a proposal makes or breaks a proposal. Written proposals and interviews are evaluated with attention to: scholarly merit; feasibility; quality and breadth of idea; clarity; strength of recommendations; fortitude and creativity.
