Is there a page limit on these applications?
The application is a fill-able form on the Life Sciences website. It is essentially 4 pages in length: Abstract (200 words), background (500 words), research plan (500 words), expected products (200 words), timeline (200 words). Budget and literature cited are also included.
Can I upload an image or figure with my application?
Sadly, we are not accepting uploaded images or figures with the application.
Can Neuroscience or other non-major students apply?
Yes. However, all students must have a faculty mentor from the College of Life Sciences.
Can I have a mentor who is a faculty member in another college?
Faculty mentors must be from the College of Life Sciences. The University provides experiential learning money to each college. We are supporting Life Science faculty who are mentoring Life Science, Neuroscience or other majors. Students with mentors in other colleges should ask that college their plans for mentored research opportunities.
How will I receive my money?
The money will be deposited into your BYU Financial Center at the beginning of winter semester.
