Steps for Applying

 

Welcome to the SciMON network General Application page. By applying to a research and mentoring program, you are enhancing your undergraduate experience and taking an important step to prepare for your future in research.

SciMON has created a General Application form that many of the programs utilize. Some of the programs, however, have their own application process. The following are the programs that use the application:

Other programs have their own individualized application processes described in the Step-by-Step chart below

(Please also check out the "Step-by-Step" chart below)

IMPORTANT: Please note that the General Application only needs to be filled out once to apply to multiple programs. SciMON staff will ensure that your completed application is sent to all programs to which you apply, regardless of whether or not their deadline is approaching, has not yet been announced, or is not coming up for several months.
