Where can I apply?

We will open applications for 2025 on December 1, 2024. 

What's required to apply?

  • The basics - your contact information, university, major, GPA, transcripts (unofficial transcripts are accepted).

  • Prior experiences in research and teaching (none are required to participate). 

  • A 2,000-character personal statement (specifics provided in the application).

Letters of recommendation are not required to apply.

How will applications be evaluated?
​Our objective is to broaden participation in polymer chemistry research for undergraduate students. Students who would otherwise be denied these opportunities due to status, nationality, or systemic norms will be given priority. As such, the Investigators will receive a version of your application that does not include your name, institution, GPA, transcripts, or other identifying details. They will choose applicants to interview based on their major, projects of interest, and personal statement. 
Tip: Ensure the first few lines of your statement are attention-grabbing!
