The proposal will be due one month following the summer institute and will be evaluated by the coordinating faculty. Further follow-ups of the students will be conducted during the year following the summer institute to determine success in proposing, formulating, and conducting research in HRSB.

    Student and faculty evaluation of institute: All of the institute participants including both students and faculty (coordinating and invited) will be asked for their comments concerning the summer institute. Their views about the summer institute's strengths and weaknesses, as well as suggestions for future summer institutes will be solicited.
