AZ Partners in Science accepts applications from two-member teams composed of a science faculty from the University of Arizona and a Tucson-based science high school teacher. Proposals are submitted by the university faculty and endorsed by the University of Arizona. To be eligible, the science faculty should be research active and the high-school teacher should have a current appointment to teach courses in natural sciences.
Applicants submit proposals describing a research plan and how this partnership will benefit both high school and university environments. Successful proposals contain high-quality research plans that will likely lead to publishable results in the primary literature. Preference is given to partnerships with high school teachers with little or no prior research experience. Consult the complete guidelines and the FAQ section for full details.
The 2013 deadline for proposal submission is December 1. Applications must conform to guidelines and directions, and need to be endorsed by the institution. Potential applicants begin the online submission process by completing the eligibility quiz. If eligible, applicants are given access to a web page with application forms and submission instructions. View a sample application here. For questions regarding eligibility and application processes, please contact Dr. Silvia Ronco at email@example.com.
