Funding for the program is generously donated by CNR alumni. Students have the option to apply for funding for their own research project, or to apply to work on a research project conducted by CNR faculty.

To apply, students will need a resume, unofficial copy of their transcript, and a statement/cover letter. Faculty-Initiated Projects will be posted in mid-April; Students apply between April 12-19.
