Please note that the Quad will be conducted in a hybrid format this semester. We will hold mandatory work sessions over Zoom as well as in person. Work sessions will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings for a 1.5 hour block of time between 3:30pm MT - 7:30pm MT (specific time frame will depend on team availability). The third meeting time each week will be decided by your team.
We will hold one in person work session each week while the other two work sessions will be held over Zoom.
We understand that academic schedules are in flux due to COVID-19 and may not be known as this time. To the best of your knowledge, applicants should be free for a 1.5 hour block of time on Monday and Wednesday evenings between 3:30pm MT - 7:30pm MT.
Students are expected to work 10-15 hours a week for the duration of the 11 week program. 4-5 of those hours will be spent in mandatory meetings with your project team. The other 6-10 hours will be spent doing individual work. The program stipend is $1,350 per student.
If selected, there will be a 1 hour group Zoom interview that will occur before a final application decision is made. Project interest and selection will be discussed during this interview and will be assigned no later than the week prior to the program start date. We will attempt to match students with projects based on interest and skills. Please contact Associate Director, Belle Cotton McDonald, at email@example.com if you have any questions. Thank you!
