Steps for Applying

 

Welcome to the SciMON network General Application page. We are excited that you are interested in enhancing your undergraduate experience by applying to a research and mentoring program. You are 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:

 

 

  • AstroCom NYC
  • BP-ENDURE
  • Catalyst
  • MARC
  • MBRS-RISE
  • McNair
  • RAISE-W
Other programs have their own individualized application processes described in the Step-by-Step chart below

CLICK HERE to fill out the General Application for the above listed programs
(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. We at SciMON 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.
