You are applying to join a research project, which is operating in a culturally diverse country under conditions, which will likely be quite different from those to which you are accustomed. The project involves hard physical labor and the ability to live and cooperate in close quarters with others in an environment unlike your home country. This questionnaire helps to ensure that the project operates smoothly and that we have some idea of your skills, interests, strengths, and weaknesses prior to the beginning of the field season. Please try to answer as accurately and completely as possible.
New applicants are required to submit the names of two current teachers that you would like to use as references. Applicants should be currently enrolled in these teacher’s classes. Project space is limited so applications will be judged by committee. Your application and the recommendations provided by teachers will determine project acceptance.
Medical and dietary concerns: It is imperative that we are aware of any special medical and dietary concerns, which you may have. We may not be able to accommodate certain special diets and no facilities exist to deal with severe handicaps or medical conditions.
