Connecting Experiences Step-By-Step Home
Your proposal due date will depend on the location of your experience. Visit the Connecting Experience Forms page for exact dates. Late contracts will not be accepted. Remember that it can take time to get signatures from faculty members and internship supervisors.
Connecting Experience Paperwork
- Contract. Every student completing a Research Connecting Experience is required to fill out a contract (PDF).
-You and your faculty mentor will need to discuss and agree on a meeting schedule and requirements, expectations, and basis for grading the Connecting Experience.
-Your experience cannot count as a Connecting Experience and you cannot be registered for a BDP research course without a completed contract, signed by your faculty mentor.
- Proposal Statement. Along with your contract, you need to submit a 1-page statement (double-spaced) describing your proposed experience. In your project description, be sure to clearly articulate how your experience relates to your BDP topic and, if applicable, to your strand.
- All contracts will be reviewed immediately after the deadline and you will be notified about approval of your proposal thereafter. All Connecting Experience Forms can be found here.
