    and mathematics courses completed.
  2. An unofficial copy of the student’s most recent transcript.
  3. Short text (~1500 words) outlining the proposed research, including environmental focus and implications.
  4. Letter of recommendation (in a sealed envelope signed by the faculty) from a faculty member familiar with the
