Application Materials


Projects can be directly connected to ongoing Momentum Center projects, or can explore new research ideas that are not related to current initiatives, as long as they relate to child obesity.

Goals should be identified and specified with the faculty mentor prior to initiating the project.  If the student is already working with the mentor he/she must specify the project that will be conducted with Momentum Center funds beyond the scope of the current work.
