Q: In the evaluation rubric, the highest mark for student involvement is described in this way: “The proposal clearly articulates active roles for students in the project, and envisions using a majority of funds for this purpose.” Do you mean here that a majority of the funds is used to pay students to work on the project? Or do you mean that a majority of funds is used to enhance students’ experience in some way?

A: The intent of that criterion was to provide students with employment/mentorship/experience/training opportunities. Keep in mind that this is only one of the criteria, so certainly projects that don’t employ students will be duly considered. However, I think the committee would like to see that students are hired to work on projects over contracting out the work to third-party companies, if appropriate student labour was available.
