The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is pleased to announce the “Call for Proposals” for its CTBUH 2017 Student Research Competition – culminating with an award of $20,000 to be recognized at the CTBUH 2017 Conference to be held in Sydney, Australia, from October 30 to November 3, 2017. The funding for this competition has been made possible with the kind support of Underwriters Laboratories.
The goal of the 2017 Student Research Competition is to assist talented students, working in groups under the guidance of a professor, to focus on a relevant research question, and create an engaging “output” as a response. Research proposals should directly relate to the 2017 topic of “tall building performance.” It is up to the student group to interpret that theme, and outline how their research will address it, including how the funds will be used to support the intended outcome.
The ultimate objective of this award is to give the chance to students of any discipline to immerse, for the first time, in detailed, academic research, under the guidance of a professor, in a topic that the students are particularly interested and invested in.
Proposals (via the proposal template form, download here) are due by Friday, June 30, 2017 (12 pm Chicago time) – submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. The file submitted and all its attachments should not exceed 5MB.
To express your interest in participating prior to this date, to discuss the suitability of your proposal in more detail or to ask any questions, please also contact: email@example.com.
The award for this competition will be provided by Underwriters Laboratories, in the amount of $20,000, paid in two installments of $10,000. CTBUH will facilitate the transfer of funds to the appropriate university or professor involved with this project to support the students in their research activities. Please note: the budget cannot be used to cover costs to attend the CTBUH conference and collect the award, or to disseminate the findings at conferences, symposiums, etc. It needs to be used for the actual research in some way.
The criteria for selection include the following broad guidelines:
