Dr. Martin will talk about what goes into a good proposal with an emphasis on clear writing. We are back in our DHC room this week 3:10-4:30  Please contact Mandy Slate with any questions: slatemandy@gmail.com

Our fall semester ICN meeting will be on October 24th from 3:10- 4:30 in DHC 023.

The Interdisciplinary Collaborative Network formed as a result of a collaborative effort between graduate students and faculty at The University of Montana (UM) in order to provide an instrument through which individuals in disparate fields of study and/or geographic locales can easily find opportunities to contribute to research on the same system or concept. We are fostering a professional network that we hope will enhance the diversity and scope of scientific investigations within and between Montana Universities.

"More than just an extra pair of hands to help with the numerous tasks of doing research, an undergraduate student brings an extra pair of keen eyes. They often see the research from a totally new and innovative perspective." 

- Professor Robert Winglee (Earth & Space Sciences, UW)
