Requirements for CTY Cogito Research Award Winners

The CTY Cogito Research Awards are on hiatus this year.
Please check back in Fall 2017.

After the CTY Cogito Research Award winners are chosen, each winner will be paired with an instructor in a relevant field who will provide virtual guidance to the winner as the project develops. Award winners who already have a mentor may choose to forgo this part of the award. Mentors for winning projects are expected to monitor and support the projects as they progress, and to help the award winner submit the final report. 

Please note: This award does not provide an on-site internship at Johns Hopkins University. Award winners work with their mentors through telephone and electronic correspondence.

Requirements for Award Winners

  • Winners are expected to conduct their research between the time the award is announced in January and August of the award year. 
  • Each winner or winning team will submit posts to the research award winner's blog. 
  • Each winner or winning team will submit a final report in mid-August of the award year documenting how the project was conducted, what was learned, and how the funds were spent.
  • Each winner or winning team will post an acknowledgment of any mentors who assisted them on the project and a bibliography of any sources of information consulted to conduct or inform the research.
