SUBMITTING A PROPOSAL (Research NOT Involving Human Testing)

Each team must submit 1 electronic copy of an original proposal for consideration and review. Each team may submit to only one of the five design challenges. Each proposal must be submitted in a four-section format containing the required sections in the order as listed: Technical, Safety Evaluation, Outreach Plan, and Administrative. A table addressing the components of each section, the required format, forms is included. Note that any section component that does not specifically apply to the team's proposal should be noted as such. No section or component should be skipped/omitted under any circumstance.
We recommend printing the following sections and making a notebook for easy reference.
