You are being asked to fill out this questionnaire instead of submitting a written statement for this award. You are expected to answer these questions on your own and without the help of a mentor. Your answers will be used by the award panel to assess the merit of your application and to match you with a potential research mentor if you have not chosen one. The length of your answer is indicated at the end of each question. To avoid losing your work, please prepare your answers to the questions 10-20 in a separate document first and then paste them into the survey.
