  • We like to publicize the work our students do at our conference (Sept/Oct), so we may ask you to prepare a video or presentation that we can showcase. This is live streamed across the internet so you can watch if you are available. We also blog about your progress.

  • Read the Other Resources section in the project specification. It contains information of direct relevance to the project such as, additional reading material, a link to the corresponding JIRA issue, links to sources etc. 
  • Contact the project mentor to ask questions or discuss your ideas. We don't necessarily expect you to have all the answers and the chances are, there are challenges that may not be visible at first sight. The mentor will be interested to hear your ideas and is perfectly placed to help you develop them and answer your questions.
  • Use our proposal guidelines to make sure you provide us with everything we need to know about you and your project plans.
  • Update your proposal with the results of any discussions you have with a mentor and also to reflect the answers to questions. Don't assume the mentor will remember. 
  • Get the final version to Lorraine Chapman by our intern program mailbox by 7pm UTC on the deadline date.
  • And finally good luck!
