Spoke to the SMART office today. As of 3:15, there were about 2000 completed applications and about 8000 in progress. The person I spoke with indicated there might be over 500 scholarships awarded this round. That's interesting... I wonder how many out of the 8000 in progress hit that submit button...

Re: Advice for a cognitive, neural, and behavioral science applicant

If you don't finish your research by then, you're in default with them on every penny given to you, including inter...

Re: 2021 Applicants Thread

For human factors you could try applying to some of the Navy facilities. Specifically, Naval Submarine Medical Research Lab and Naval Undersea Warfare Center have human factors scientists/engineers. I think NUWC is bigger than NSMRL so probably has more funding. Wow! Thanks for the heads up :) I'll...

When is the last week? Last week of March. It is my understanding that the first week of April is when finalists are notified (much like first week of February was when semi-finalists were notified). I was told the last day that SFs had to make their selections was today March 18. Unless that has c...

Any scholar who has an internship that it supposed to begin around this time period should also be restricted from trav...

Does anybody know the chances of being awarded the SMART scholarship if you haven't been contacted for an interview?
I'd also like this information.
