NOTE: The Director will be out of the office from December 9-13. Review times will be affected. Our research assistant will still conduct prereview of all submissions during this time, but no official actions will be taken by the ERC. Please plan accordingly.
There are no specific deadlines, except for students soon to graduate or students taking two-semester research courses (see deadlines in Student Project Timelines). We recommend that you apply at least four weeks prior to the start of your project if you are not a student subject to these special deadlines.
During our high volume times (late October into mid-spring), submit as early as possible. Submissions made during the month of December may not turn around until early January.
Decisions are communicated roughly one week after the submission of a complete package during low volume times.
