Houston Scholars Proposal Development & Assessment
As a member of Houston Scholars, each year you will work with a University of Houston faculty member to develop a proposal related to your future professional and career goals. Your proposal topic may be to conduct research, undertake a service project or internship, attend or present at a professional conference, or study/research abroad. Students will defend their proposals to members of the Houston Scholars Faculty Committee, and competitive proposals may receive funding. Senior students are not eligible to compete for Houston Scholars funding. Visit the Scholar Profiles page to find brief descriptions of previously funded proposals.
When writing your proposal, please follow these Houston Scholars Proposal Guidelines and S.M.A.R.T. writing tips.
The deadline to submit a proposal for summer 2017 funding has passed.
If your proposal is approved for funding, then you must complete the following pre- and post-project assessments. Remember to work with your Houston Scholars faculty mentor to complete the assessment essays.
