I am more than willing to write the proposal rough draft over winter
break. I had been thinking about applying for a few weeks now, as a
club. I was unsure if a club could apply or solely individual
reaseach, but I don't see why they would discourage us.
I have an internship this winter break and plenty of time in the
office to work on something like this. Thank-you for the support!!
If any other members would like to be involved, please let me know :)
