Any undergraduate students currently enrolled at OU are eligible to submit proposals. Seniors who will complete their projects in the summer after graduation may also apply.
Project teams can be composed in any combination of students from OU, other participating parner institutions, or non-partner institutions. Although each team member and their school need to be listed on the proposal and final report, the project lead must be an OU undergraduate in order for projects to be considered,
To be considered, a student, or group of students, must prepare a proposal that may not exceed three (3) pages.
The format of the propsal:
- Header, which must include: name of the participating institution, name of all student participants, title of project, dates of the project, country where the project will be performed.
- Two-page written statement describing the project (who, what, where, how) including expected outcomes and prospects for future impact (not to exceed two pages).
Proposals should include pre-approval of all parties and organizations involved in the project. The two-page proposal and one page budget should be submitted electronically to the OU UWC Scholars Program office at the email address listed below. If the budget exceeds $10,000, the proposal must identify the sources of funding to cover the additional costs.
