Congratulations to Devin Sullivan and Shannon Quinn for getting their pilot project, Short-Term Innovative Research (STIR): Predoctoral Grant Competition, fully funded on Experiment.com.
Writing grants is the number one skill required for a successful independent scientist. This project provides Ph.D. students with training in this crucial skill by creating a mock funding agency. Students will design and submit proposals for original research. These proposals will be evaluated by students, and those that score highest will be directly supported by funding from this campaign with every dollar going towards student research.
