CRITERIA FOR SELECTION

CONDITIONS

Other summer commitments that either the student or the faculty member may have must not interfere with the demands of this program. Please note that during the grant period students may not enroll in summer school since they are expected to commit to the project a minimum of 35–40 hours per week. The Storytellers' Institute and its events (both during the day and at night) shall be the priority over all other commitments.

Students will not be supported to stay on campus beyond the grant period for which they have been funded. Faculty members are discouraged from teaching in summer school or participating in any other grant program during the grant period.

Participants are expected to be present for all group sessions unless prior arrangements have been made with the Program Coordinator for the Faculty Student Summer Research Program when the awards are accepted. Participating teams will be given a schedule of expected dates for session participation.

All financial documentation and itemized receipts need to be submitted to the MDOCS Director by the end of the summer program.
All materials and/or equipment purchased with the aid of grant funding become the property of Skidmore College/MDOCS when the funded project is completed.

Participants are expected to present their work in a final presentation at the end of the Institute and to submit a progress report/media produced for MDOCS to store by July 15, 2016.
