I am pretty sure, this is an award to fund research being conducted by  
an individual student under a faculty mentor.  This isn't really  
exactly club funding.  So, the author of this proposal will need to  
describe how he/she will be conducting their research, ie: providing a  
hypothesis, establishing need, describing a plan, quantifying and  
qualifying results, etc.

Quoting Jacqueline Elizabeth Bell <[log in to unmask]>:
