Research Competency

The extended research project gives the scholar the chance to address the identified challenge in an immersive way under the guidance of a research mentor.  This component can be fulfilled in a research laboratory, off-campus in a community, in the library, in a maker space, etc… The scholar will experience a research topic in which they may build up an extensive knowledge base so that they are able to make interesting and testable hypotheses.   As the scholar takes on a research project centered around improving the human condition, they will be presented with opportunities to fulfill all other facets of the grand challenges program, and so the research component is considered to be core to the vast experience gained from the GCSP.
