Please review the following, successful proposal before you submit your own proposal. Especially consider how these proposals articulate the goals and significance of the projects, how they demonstrate a clear connection between research methods and research questions, and how they show that the study can be successfully completed during the proposed field research period.

Architecture students are encouraged to read Architectural Research Methods by Linda Groat and David Wang for assistance in identifying methods for your proposal. When in doubt, contact Katie Pierce Meyer, your friendly Librarian for Architecture & Planning. 

Students may also wish to review the information presented at the Independent Research Travel Scholarship Information Session (updated Oct. 2016)
