2013 WARF Discovery Challenge
The Discovery Challenge, part of the WARF Student Ambassador program, aims to promote cross-disciplinary research. It is a forum for students to share research results, exchange ideas and improve their communication skills. Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers competed for a total of $2,000 in cash prizes at a research symposium held on May 20, 2013. Participants and those who attended the symposium are eligible to participate in part two of the Discovery Challenge: a mini-grant competition to be held in the fall of 2013. Up to three mini-grants of $5,000 each will be awarded to research teams to advance their innovative and collaborative projects.
