Application Information

To apply, please complete the online application.

 

Institutional Review Board (IRB) Information:

If your project involves work with human participants (ex. surveys, interviews) your project will require IRB approval.  Your faculty mentor must possess the relevant training and be willing to supervise your research methodology.

You must correspond via email or in person with an IRB chair or the IRB administrator prior to applying to receive guidance on IRB requirements.  You may apply for the fellowship prior to receiving official IRB approval, but if granted the fellowship, you will not receive funding until you have received IRB approval.  See http://www.scrippscollege.edu/academics/irb  for information on how to apply for IRB approval, including the link to the online application.

 

Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) Information:

If your research involves work with animals, you must work closely with a Keck Science professor who has the expertise required for the project and you must receive relevant training and health clearance. All experiments involving vertebrate animals must be approved by the Keck Science Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (http://www.kecksci.claremont.edu/research/).   Contact Professor Melissa Coleman (mcoleman@kecksci.claremont.edu) with questions about animal use.
