Burning River Awards
The City and Community Studies Initiative is offering two awards to students which can be used to help defray the expenses associated with their research projects.
- What is the nature of the research you seek to support through this award? What specific question does it seek to answer? How will it add to our understanding of city and community issues?
- What is your research design? What are you attempting to accomplish? At what stage are you in this research and how much more time is required?
- How would the award assist you in completing the project? That is, how do you plan to use the award money?
