The DRG Advisory Committee will be looking for:
1) Is it novel? (completed works will not be considered)
2) Is it scientifically relevant research that will advance knowledge in the industry?
3) Is there enough background to believe that the testing and analysis can be performed in a timely manner. If you are relying on assistance from outside groups or universities for lab work and/or labor please provide a letter from the department.
The proposal will be scored on each of the sections below: Abstract, Background, Materials and Methods, Budget and Justification, Observations and Significance, and References
