DDIG Deadline Reminder

We’re a month away from the 2015 Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant deadline for DEB (any cluster) and IOS (Behavioral Systems Cluster [Animal Behavior] only).

If you are planning to submit:

Please be sure all of the required paperwork and certifications (especially the “statement that the student has advanced to candidacy for a Ph.D., signed and dated by the department chairperson, graduate dean, or similar administrative official”) will be ready for the submission. Also, please make sure your organizational representative (usually, the Sponsored Research Office (SRO)) is aware of the due date to avoid missing the deadline.
