One faculty member from Humanities or Social Sciences
One faculty member from Sciences or Engineering
A committee of faculty and librarians will judge entries on the evidence of the applicant's research strategy, process, and personal learning as demonstrated in the:
Submitted project (must be in English so reviewers can read it)
Summarized in the research essay
Reflected in the applicant's bibliography
Faculty support letter
Expectations for achievement will be commensurate with the requirements of the discipline. Committee members will utilize a rubric to evaluate submissions (see box at right). It is strongly recommended that you use the rubric as a guide when composing your research essay and that you send the rubric to the faculty member when requesting a letter of support.
