It is not too soon to start thinking of a project for a 2007 summer research grant. The IPE Program gives one $4000 summer grant each year to fund independent study research. You can read about the requirements and see a list of the previous winners by clicking here.
The university also provides funding for summer research grants. Click here to read about these summer grant programs.
The deadline for the IPE grant proposals in March 2, 2007. The deadline for the university's grants in March 22, 2007. The IPE deadline is earlier so that we can provide constructive feedback to students who are not awarded the IPE grant, which we hope will help them write even better proposals for the university competition.
The IPE summer research grant is funded from the royalties generated by the IPE textbook project.
