- a graduate student or apprentice within a non-academic setting that has not obtained doctoral candidate status within their program;
- a member of SCRA;
- in the planning or pilot stages of the research project for which you are seeking funds (i.e., this award is not for projects that have been completed prior to RFP); and
- advised by a faculty member or professional supervisor, preferably one who is a SCRA member
