Cottrell Scholars

Dates and Deadlines

Applications that conform to guidelines are first screened by RCSA Program Directors to assess the quality of the educational plan. Only submissions with truly unique educational plans aimed at improving undergraduate or graduate science education are further considered and reviewed by external research experts and Science Advisory Committee members.

Award recommendations are made by the Science Advisory Committee and approved by the RCSA Board of Directors. CS Awardees are required to attend at least two Cottrell Scholar Conferences during the duration of the award. See the Cottrell Scholar Conference page for more details.
